JAKARTA, Indonesia, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that it has signed an agreement with Telkom Indonesia (through its affiliate telkomsigma) to build a data center together and provide data center operations services in the country. This collaboration is expected to address the needs of organizations across industries in Indonesia for data center solutions, supported by reliable communication networks.

Telkom also worked with IBM to address critical location challenges, such as Indonesia's frequent earthquakes and tropical storms that can potentially bring down key communications networks. The data center, designed to endure natural disasters, is backed-up by power generators and systems that support the main power and electricity to ensure uninterrupted operations.

"We chose IBM as our strategic partner due to its proven capability of designing, building, and operating the most advanced data centers. IBM's comprehensive suite of data center offerings will help companies in the region improve efficiency, scale up easily, and harness new opportunities," said Arief Yahya, President Director, Telkom.



IBM will design and build the data center to the highest standards of energy efficiency, ensuring optimal utilization of resources. As a tier 4 data center, it will be designed to provide maximum uptime, enabling organizations to host their mission critical computer systems. Also, utilizing the power of analytics, the data center will be able to rationalize the IT infrastructure, improve operational efficiency, while reducing operating costs.

"As the world moves to a mobile environment and creates mountains of data, it is critical that data center efficiency increases manifold. This engagement between Telkom and IBM brings together the best of both worlds in IT and communications. With IBM's extensive capabilities in data centre capacity, combined with Telkom's experience and understanding of local business needs, we will be able to provide our clients with a superior experience," said Suryo Suwignjo, President Director, IBM Indonesia.
