Businesses are also beginning to embrace data-intensive technologies like IOT, data analytics, and AI. In addition, the Indonesian government has plans to build national data centers (Pusat Data Nasional) in four distinct locations. Apart from that, the building of data center facilities has started both locally and internationally by operators and developers. STT GDC, Digital Edge, and LOGOS have all made the decision to partner with Pure Data Centers in order to develop their data centers in Indonesia.

Not to mention, in 2021, 73% of the 276 million people on the planet will have daily access to the internet, up from 54% in 2017.

Only 36% of Indonesia has fiber-optic coverage, with fibre connections improving in major areas but still lacking in distant and rural areas. Additionally, the DCs face difficulties due to Indonesia's erratic power supply. The main source of electricity for DCs in Indonesia is the state-owned PLN. The risks associated with earthquakes and urban floods in Indonesia are both considered significant. It is crucial and difficult to do a location evaluation to establish the best location for data centers. Finally, when it comes to cyber security risks, Indonesia is currently the third most targeted nation. Indonesian data center customers are expressing concerns over the country’s increasing number of cyberattacks, and this could have a bad effect on the sector.
