Epsilon to deliver AWS Direct Connect in Indonesia

Epsilon Telecommunications (Epsilon) plans to provide customers with access to the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region in Indonesia, the second AWS Region in Southeast Asia outside of Singapore. 

Customers can buy and manage dedicated network connections to the new AWS Region using Epsilon’s Cloud Connect solution, which is delivered on its Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform Infiny. 

According to a press release, as an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner, Epsilon provides secure, flexible, and scalable connectivity to AWS via its global private network. AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners have passed additional validation from the AWS Service Delivery Program for enabling customers to access AWS Direct Connect. 

In addition, Epsilon offers a Cloud Networking solution for advanced users. The aim is to manage a multi-cloud environment with automation, network security, and operational visibility and control. 

Indonesia is home to over 200 million internet users and some of the largest startups in Southeast Asia. With the launch of the new AWS Region in Indonesia, our customers and partners can now expand their cloud service footprint into one of the fastest-growing markets in the world,” said Warren Aw, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific at Epsilon. 

He also added, “this addition strengthens our existing network of cloud connection services for AWS already available in numerous locations across Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the United States. We look forward to enabling cloud connectivity for our customers and partners to AWS in Indonesia and around the world.” 

It is worth mentioning that Indonesia is a strategic market for Epsilon with customers such as Tokopedia, an Indonesian technology company specializing in e-commerce. Epsilon’s managed Cloud Routing service connects Tokopedia’s production environments in AWS with other clouds using multiple high-speed Cloud Connect. The solutions provide the technology unicorn’s cloud to cloud needs via Epsilon’s private network. 

Ryan de Melo, VP of Engineering at Tokopedia, said, “through Cloud Connect, Epsilon helps us to directly access the cloud service providers of our choice with high-bandwidth connectivity that matches our needs. Thus, we can focus on improving our offering without worrying about the network infrastructure. We hope that this ongoing partnership can also empower us to build a reliable online marketplace for businesses and consumers across Indonesia and to achieve further our mission of democratizing commerce through technology.”
