‘We’ve made tremendous progress finalizing the build of our JAK2 facility launching this September.’


Welcome to our first newsletter!

We trust you’ve been safe and well as lockdown measures begin to lift across the world. During COVID-19, SpaceDC has deployed drone and remote working technology to provide our customers and staff the needed information and intelligence to complete tasks. We are also pleased to have tremendous progress finalizing the revitalization of our JAK2 facility that will launch this September.

We are thrilled to receive confirmation from the Open Compute Foundation Project (OCP) community as Asia’s first OCP colo solution provider. With this OCP certification, customers can trust our ability to provide reliable, scalable and efficient data center solutions.

In the last 12 months, our team has grown 400% to meet data center development activity. This directly relates to the work we do for our customers, providing them space to grow. As part of the team’s growth, it is a great pleasure to introduce Elisabeth Simatupang as our Indonesian country manager. Elisabeth spearheads our data center operations in Indonesia with over 11 years of experience managing data centers around the world, notably AWS and Bali Towerindo. Elisabeth and our Jakarta office have worked tirelessly to build the JAK2 operations and maintenance team who have the international experience and expertise to operate local facilities.

Throughout the year, SpaceDC has received numerous awards and recognition within the data center industry. The most recent award is Carolyn Harrington, COO of SpaceDC, who was recognized as one of the world’s most influential marketeers by Data Economy.

2020 has been a challenging time for businesses, we would like to thank our staff and their partners who have made it possible for us to thrive amid difficult circumstances. We have progressed greatly since 2017 when we first viewed over 50 sites before ultimately selecting the location we would build our ID01 campus. The fiber rich and strategic location between the airport and city will give customers access to a resilient and robust campus network like no other. It will be a proud moment for the team when our facility goes live and we welcome our first customers, providing them the space to grow.

Looking to the future, watch out as we break ground for our next 24MW facility, JAK1, located on the ID01 campus in October. This will be quickly followed by announcements of our expansion plans across Asia. Stay tuned!

All the best,
Darren Hawkins
CEO of SpaceDC
