Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of Chinese tech giant Tencent, has opened its first Internet Data Centre (IDC) in Indonesia. The opening marks Tencent Cloud’s expanded global footprint with established infrastructure spanning across 27 regions and 61 availability zones.
Located in Jakarta, the latest IDC enables Tencent Cloud to be closer to its customers and users, reducing access delays to data and applications, and helping businesses in the country accelerate their digital transformation. It also helps its customers meet regulatory and compliance requirements, providing more disaster recovery options in the whole Asia-Pacific region.
The new IDC will also support the growing needs of a wide range of industries, from financial services, Internet and e-commerce to education, gaming and entertainment.
For instance, music and entertainment streaming platform JOOX is supported by Tencent Cloud on a range of entertainment offerings, including music streaming and karaoke singing with its processing capability for lyrics and audio timeline smart matching, as well as concert live streaming and video-on-demand.
Another entertainment platform, WeTV, has also deployed Tencent Cloud’s technology to deliver Asian content with features such as options for Indonesian audio and subtitles, high-quality image and interactive, real-time comments.
Lesley Simpson, Country Manager at WeTV Indonesia, said, “We are excited to reap the benefits of the new IDC, which will further enhance and improve the already reliable and high-quality service of Tencent Cloud, allowing us to create an even more unrivalled viewing experience for our users.”
