Jack Mizzi

Chief Marketing Officer

BMIT, Malta’s largest data centre, cloud and managed services provider, has announced the building of its newest data centre in Malta, further reinforcing their status as the leading multi-site data centre on the island. The company, trusted by over 250 Malta-based gaming operators, is set to open this new state of the art purpose-built facility in Żejtun by next year, with works already well underway.

BMIT’s Żejtun data centre will have a total capacity of more than 400 racks and will be fully certified to Tier 3 standards by the Uptime Institute. The data centre will be located on a newly built campus which will also house the company’s main technical, commercial, administrative and management teams. The €10m facility follows a number of other investments done in the past three years, including a new data centre in SmartCity Malta, a private high-capacity international network and the acquisition of a company providing managed on premise IT services.

“We look forward to providing our esteemed customers and potential clients with even more capacity in what will be one of the best equipped facilities on the island. Part of our commitment to customers is to keep investing in new technologies and infrastructure to ultimately provide the best possible service. While we’re also expanding our portfolio of IT solutions, we are still focusing on improving on what we’re already established in”, commented Gordon Bezzina, BMIT’s Chief Technical Officer.
