Melita Data Cen­tre ex­hibits at Malta Blockchain Sum­mit

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

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.
