BDx Indonesia – a joint venture of Indosat, BDx Data Centers, backed by I Squared Capital and Lintasarta – has agreed to acquire a portfolio of data centres in Indonesia for IDR2.63bn (€154m).

The portfolio consists of carrier-neutral colocation and edge sites in key cities such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Batam, Medan, Makassar, Bandung, and Semarang, including ten sites connected to six domestic and five international subsea cables.

The latest transaction further expands the partnership between Indosat, Indonesia’s telecom provider, trading as Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison, and BDx, formed in 2022.

Mayank Srivastava, chief executive officer of BDx, said: “This acquisition is a testament to BDx Indonesia’s commitment to the country’s digital future. It is also an endorsement of the technical and operational capabilities of BDx that provided the confidence to our partner to sell their entire portfolio of data centre and edge sites to us.”

Vikram Sinha, president director and chief executive officer of Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison, said: “This transaction underscores our dedication to building a sustainable business and propelling Indosat’s evolution from “Telco to TechCo”.

“Collaborating with BDx Indonesia not only enhances our customer service but also reinforces our commitment to connecting and empowering every Indonesian. Crucially, aligning our strategic goals will enable Indosat and BDx Indonesia to elevate the nation’s technological landscape.”

The new portfolio will further add to the interconnected ecosystem BDx Indonesia is building to help accelerate hybrid digital transformations and significantly enhance the digital experience of enterprises, technology companies, and internet users.
