ABB to support growing data centers business in Indonesia

2016-05-13 - Keeping with the rapid development of Indonesia’s data centers industry, ABB’s data center solutions offering is helping ensure their safe, efficient and reliable operation in prominent industries.

The advancement of information and industrial technology in Indonesia has been growing rapidly since 2012. Moreover, with the Indonesian government’s plan for an e-commerce roadmap requiring local data centers for security purposes, it is no surprise that the demand for data centers in Indonesia is rising across various industries, creating more opportunities for technology providers. A growing number of private and public businesses, from banks and insurance companies to telecommunications and internet providers, all have critical infrastructure and information in data centers. Gathering, storing and managing data requires maximum operating reliability.

Data centers are expected to perform well, the power supply needs to be reliable, equipped with an efficient cooling system, noise-free and without significant interruptions. This is the main responsibility for all technology providers that provide data centers for the enterprises they support. ABB is a supplier of electrical devices and systems for data centers that has dealt with “critical power” in all respects and in all sectors for decades.

In building the most reliable and efficient data centers, technology providers require to manage three main components: IT systems, facility equipment and electrical systems. No matter how robust or technically advanced the IT systems and facility equipment are if the electrical system capabilities are inadequate for the task. ABB Decathlon provides the visibility, decision support, and centralized monitoring and controls to better manage data center operations enterprise-wide. With Decathlon, data centers can deliver services faster, in the most reliable and efficient way possible.

Over the past few years, ABB has been involved in the construction of data centers for some technology providers in Indonesia. In 2013, ABB partnered with one of the country’s leading integrated end-to-end ICT solutions companies to supply electrical components for their data centers. In this project, ABB supplied protection panels for low voltage (LV), medium voltage (MV) and transformers to protect the electrification and to adjust the level of correct voltage.

“The significant potential and growth of data centers industry in Indonesia have caught the eyes of both local and international IT and data center providers. While most Indonesians are looking to overcome the many challenges of this growing industry, ABB provides the solutions to partner up with data center providers for greater competences,” said Richard Ledgard, Country Managing Director, ABB in Indonesia

Globally, ABB has installed the world’s most powerful direct current (DC) data centers in Switzerland at the Green Data Center Zurich–West facility, which earned Europe’s notable Watt d’Or award for the scale of the energy savings achieved through its pioneering use of DC technology. In this project, ABB designed and installed an advanced, DC power distribution system in a new state-of-the-art data center. DC technology trims power conversion losses and is 10 to 20 percent more energy efficient than traditional alternating current (AC) technology when used for electrical distribution in data centers.

ABB has an excellent knowledge of best practices applied in various projects worldwide. Thus, to support the growth of data centers industry in Indonesia, ABB will also join at DCD Converged’s 5th annual conference and expo that will be held on April 7, 2016 at Ritz Carlton Mega Kuningan, Jakarta. This is the prominent gathering of digital infrastructure professionals, local and global IT and data centers community.

“Data centers is already considered as a complex system that requires in-depth but at the same time multifunctional skills. ABB is the right partner to all data center providers to continue giving the best for the enterprises they support,” said Sutrisno Sutedjo, Manager of Control Technologies business, ABB in Indonesia.
As a global leader in the field of data centers, ABB is committed to providing the safest, most reliable and efficient products for Indonesia’s data centers industry. Through complete, smart data centers solutions, ABB provides power, monitoring, control and automation, and helps customers to realize the intelligence of their key infrastructure components.
