11th April 2012:
BMIT Ltd, Malta’s largest data centre services provider, has made a direct investment of over €1,000,000 spread over 3 years, in a new cloud platform, to enable a range of new infrastructure-as-a-service and software-as-a-service solutions.
The platform, which is now accessible through the company’s portal – www.bmit.com.mt - allows for on-demand and real-time cloud computing power and resources, at highly competitive rates. Shortly, new cloud services such as storage, hosted exchange and collaboration as well as other SaaS services will be added to the company’s cloud portfolio.
“This is the first major direct investment in a cloud infrastructure in Malta,” said Christian Sammut, Chief Executive Officer at BMIT. “The cloud platform will enable customers to benefit from the scalability and flexibility offered by such platforms in order to access several infrastructure and software as-a-service applications. With no long-term commitments we are seeking to provide the most effective delivery mechanisms to our customers. A key differential offering from other services available on the web will be the personalised attention and the 24/7 local support which our partners and customers will be receiving.”
BMIT has, over these last years, established itself as one of the leading providers of co-location, hosting and managed services to online gaming companies in Europe.It is currently diversifying its product offering and now also provides services to a wide range of customers, including those in the financial services, legal, architecture, IT solutions and retail businesses among others.
The company operates 2 data centres in Malta, with full power and multiple communications redundancy, complemented by the highest standard of operation, management and security, befitting a data centre set-up which provides services to companies with multi-million turnovers, all dependent on the services which BMIT provides them.
