Chinese cloud service provider Tencent Cloud kicked off its first internet data centre (IDC) in Jakarta in hope of taking part in the Indonesia’s growing cloud computing market.

We are very pleased to launch our first IDC here to help maximise the cloud computing potential in this country,’ noted Tencent Cloud International senior vice president Poshu Yeung.
