Epsilon seeks to maximize the potential of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Indonesia through an advanced partnership focused on providing enhanced connectivity to the newly launched region.

The provider’s Cloud Connect solution – delivered through its Infiny network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform – is designed to allow customers to purchase and manage dedicated network connections to the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) region, which was launched in December 2021.

Operating as an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner, Epsilon provides connectivity to AWS through its global private network that has also passed additional AWS Service Delivery Program validation. For advanced users, Epsilon also offers a cloud networking solution for managing a multi-cloud environment with automation, network security, and “operational visibility and control.”

“Indonesia is home to more than 200 million internet users and some of Southeast Asia’s biggest start-ups,” said Warren Aw, managing director of Asia-Pacific at Epsilon. “With the launch of the new AWS Region in Indonesia, our customers and partners can now expand their cloud service footprint in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.”

In 2019, Epsilon earned the AWS Service Delivery designation for AWS Direct Connect, which is designed to validate AWS partners with a “deep understanding” of the vendor’s core cloud services through “demonstrated experience and proven customer success.”

“This addition strengthens our existing network of cloud connection services for AWS already available in many locations in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States,” Aw added. “We look forward to enabling our customers and partners to enable cloud connectivity to AWS in Indonesia and globally. »

A major customer in Indonesia is e-commerce giant Tokopedia, which leverages Epsilon’s managed cloud routing service to connect AWS production environments to other clouds using Cloud Connect.

“Through Cloud Connect, Epsilon is helping us directly access the cloud service providers of our choice with high-speed connectivity that matches our needs,” said Ryan de Melo, VP of Engineering at Tokopedia. “So we can focus on improving our offering without having to worry about network infrastructure.

“We hope this continued partnership can also allow us to create a trusted online marketplace for businesses and consumers across Indonesia, and further our mission of democratizing commerce through technology.”

As reported by Asia ChannelAWS has officially launched its new region in Indonesia, backed by a planned investment of approximately US$5 billion (71.7 trillion rupees) in the country over the next 15 years.

Planned investment includes capital expenditures for the construction of data centers, operating expenditures related to ongoing utility and facility costs, and purchases of goods and services from regional businesses. The investment is also expected to support an average of 24,700 direct and indirect jobs per year over the 15-year period, according to research by the cloud provider.
