Melita Data Centre exhibits at Malta Blockchain Summit
Melita Data Centre, Malta’s largest and only purpose-built data centre, has exhibited at Malta Blockchain Summit. The event, which was held at the InterContinental Hotel in St Julian’s on Friday and Saturday, was highly anticipated by all involved in the technology and financial services industries.
With over 4000 delegates attending the summit, global influencers in the emerging tech industry had the opportunity to discuss the potential application of Blockchain across various industries. These include health, government, and banking – but with the technology still in its infancy, it stands to be applied even more widely.
“With the recent introduction of regulations of Virtual Financial Assets in Malta, information security for existing and potential clients operating in such industries is particularly critical. To this effect the Melita Data Centre team is offering tailor-made solutions that provide Blockchain entrepreneurs and developers with secure hosting, reliable Internet access and global connectivity to enable their applications”, commented Malcolm Briffa, Director of Business Services at Melita.
Built to Tier III specifications, the Melita Data Centre is the only purpose-built facility in Malta. It covers a total fully fenced footprint of 10,000m2, making it the island’s largest facility. This strategically chosen site is a solitary building situated on high ground. It is detached from the main traffic arteries, does not pose flooding risks and is not under any commercial aircraft flight paths, thus meeting and exceeding the stringent levels of security required. Beyond that, the site is located just a few minutes away from the main business hubs of Sliema and St Julian’s, ensuring it is excellently connected to the power grid.
