Managed services provider PT Teltranet Aplikasi Solusi (Telkomtelstra) plans to open several more data centers in a bid to expand its cloud services across the country.
Currently, the company has one data center for its cloud business in Serpong, Banten, which started operations in December, 2017.
“We will have one new data center in Sentul, West Java. It’s expected to be ready by the end of next month,” Agus F. Abdillah, Telkomtelstra chief of product and synergy, said on Tuesday, adding that another data center would be opened in Surabaya in July.
Telkomtelstra is a joint venture company established by state-owned Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) and Australia telecommunication giant (Telstra) to provide network application and services to Indonesian enterprises, multi-nationals and Australian companies operating in Indonesia.
The company started to tap into Indonesia’s growing cloud services market in August last year, when it launched Azure Hybrid Cloud with Azure Stack Platform in collaboration with PT Microsoft Indonesia.
Cloud technology allows individuals and businesses to access or process data via the internet from anywhere anytime.
On Tuesday, Telkomtelstra introduced several cloud-based products, including a cloud-based video analytic product that can help businesses analyze customers characteristics to get a better idea of who visits their sites.
The company also introduced a cloud-based desktop, Citrix, allowing users to remotely access a desktop environment with software from any device.
Agus said Telkomtelstra was eyeing customers in several segments, including private enterprises, banks, government agencies and education institutions. “Three companies have signed contracts with us after we gave trials to 14 companies since December last year,” said Agus. (roi/bbn)
