Data Centers Remain Prospective Despite Recent Attack

Bisnis, JAKARTA — Indonesia’s data center business is expected to remain lively despite subdued trust on the government following the recent ransomware attack on a temporary national data center facility, PDNS 2, in Surabaya.

According to Bisnis records, the Indonesian Data Center Association (Idpro) previously estimated that Indonesia’s data center capacity will reach 210 megawatts (MW) by 2024, or an increase of 44.83 percent compared to the previous year. Several factors driving the increase include rising internet penetration rate at 77 percent this year, as well as ongoing digital transformation boom.

The Indonesian Cloud Computing Association (ACCI) views that the hacking incident clearly impacts trust in national data centers (PDN). ACCI chairman Alex Budiyanto said the ransomware attack on PDNS 2 serves as an important lesson in data center management and will likely discourage institutions from using national data center facilities without proper assurances.

Alex emphasized the need for good governance and risk management practices to mitigate incidents and ensure rapid recovery. He added that the data center industry will be able to keep its traction if the the Communications and Information Technology Ministry collaborates with data center and cloud computing players. However, he warned that if the ministry is directly involved as an industry player, market niche will be reduced as government agencies will be required to use PDN.
