Melita Data Centre, Malta’s largest and only purpose-built data centre, will be exhibiting at Malta Blockchain Summit. The event to be held at InterContinental in St Julians between the 1st and 2nd November is highly anticipated by all involved in the technology and financial services industries.
With over 4000 delegates expected to attend the summit, global influencers in the emerging tech industry will have 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 does not sit 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.
