Founded in 2011, Lintasarta Cloudeka is a division of Lintasarta, Indonesia\u2019s leading provider of information and communications technology. Offering everything from fiber optics to data centers and satellite networks, Lintasarta has a presence throughout Indonesia, with 54 facilities spread throughout the nation and more than 2,400 enterprise customers. These include leading businesses in a wide range of industries, including agriculture, banking, government, health care, higher education, manufacturing, retail, telecommunications, and technology.\n\nWe recently caught up with Ginandjar, Marketing & Solution Director at Lintasarta, to learn what he\u2019s seeing in Indonesia\u2019s rapidly growing market for cloud services and solutions, what\u2019s accelerating cloud adoption in the country, what he sees as the next driver of growth, and what it means for the company to achieve the VMware Cloud Verified distinction.\n\n\u201cThroughout the country Lintasarta Cloudeka is known as the cloud provider from and for Indonesia,\u201d says Ginandjar. \u201cWe have a really strong understanding of the needs of the industries we serve and provide end-to-end cloud services to a diverse customer base that includes large global enterprises and small- and medium-sized companies. We really pride ourselves on helping businesses realize the full potential of the cloud, and in the process enhance and grow their businesses.\u201d\n\nLintasarta Cloudeka\u2019s wide array of cloud solutions and services includes robust public, private, and multi-cloud offerings and an extensive portfolio of managed services, from full Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to Backup and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service, cloud object storage, and everything in between.\n\nNotably, the company\u2019s Deka Prime public cloud solution and Deka Premium private cloud solution are both based on VMware technologies, as is the company\u2019s IaaS, PaaS, and other offerings. Ginandjar notes that customers manage them, as well as on-premises VMware-based infrastructure, with ease from a single dashboard using VMware vCloud Director.\n\n\u201cMost of our customers require a flexible infrastructure that doesn\u2019t require them to manage it on their own, but enables them to effortlessly spin up or spin down infrastructure capacity and computing power as needed,\u201d adds Ginandjar. \u201cWith Lintasarta Cloudeka they only pay for what they need and use, which is a one of the reasons many enterprises initially turn to us. With other providers, they often receive surprising bills or are forced to pay for services they don\u2019t use.\u201d\n\nHe also stresses that reliability and performance are key concerns for most organizations. It\u2019s a reality he says leads many to Lintasarta Cloudeka.\n\n\u201cBecause we are directly supported by Lintasarta\u2019s high-speed, high-performance networks that are renowned for their unflinching reliability, and we utilize VMware technologies that are proven and trusted by enterprises in every industry and our relied by most organizations in their on-site data centers, prospective customers know they are getting a solution that will free them to focus more on their applications and their business rather than their new software-defined infrastructure.\u201d\n\nThe resulting peace-of-mind is something he believes will be even stronger because Lintasarta Cloudeka now holds the VMware Cloud Verified distinction.\n\n\u201cAchieving the VMware Cloud Verified distinction is not an easy task for any cloud solutions or services provider, says Ginandjar. \u201cFor customers, VMware Cloud Verified is more than a distinction \u2013 it\u2019s how they seek a trusted cloud service provider. They can be certain that all technology was implemented using best practices by individuals that really understand the solutions being deployed.\u201d\n\nWhile Ginandjar still feels that some misconceptions about the cloud remain among many companies in Indonesia \u2013 including that the primary use cases for the cloud, albeit valuable ones, are storage and backup \u2013 he feels that that is changing.\n\n \u201cWe\u2019re seeing a dramatic increase in microservices and autoscaling here in Indonesia,\u201d he says. \u201cAnd with VMware, we\u2019re ideally positioned to speed up the development process involved. Now our customers can react faster and offer new services faster without ever worrying if they have the infrastructure needed to make them possible.\u201d\n\nLearn more about Lintasarta Cloudeka and its partnership with VMware here.
