Data Centres

The facilities to make a difference

BMIT’s two data centres in Malta, and Points of Presence(POPs) in Italy and Germany are housed within state-of-the-art facilities, providing a range of colocationmanaged and cloud services to countless customers across the world.

Spread over 1200m² of usable floor space, BMIT’s home to the various technical departments as well as the infrastructure and equipment that create the core of our operations. Our data centres are ISO 27001 and PCI DSS certified, giving you a complete peace of mind as to what you can expect from us.

We provide dedicated connectivity across our sites and to the internet, via our own exclusive private international network.  Our partnerships with leading international carriers and Tier 1 service providers allow us to ensure full redundancy and top-performance throughout. As a result, you will immediately benefit from better value and lower costs, while still being guaranteed the utmost levels of quality and service.

Finally, as security remains one of our foremost concerns, each area within our data centres is protected by a perimeter alarm and constantly monitored by a CCTV system.

Connectivity

Setting the standards

We appreciate that connectivity is critical for any of our customers, and that’s exactly why we have invested and built an exclusive, international private network, linking all our data centre sites, and the Internet.  We have partnered with leading local and international carriers and Tier 1 global IP providers, to ensure optimal performance and service delivery.  We can now truly provide you with unmatched connectivity options, both at our data centres and beyond.

Do you want unparalleled connectivity across leading carriers?  The benefits of this are numerous, including:

  • Use of a managed, private network, designed as a fully protected, dual-homed, high-speed network, linking all BMIT facilities in Malta, Italy and Germany
  • Access to at least 40Gbps of Internet connectivity, a result of our close collaboration with Level 3 and TeliaSonera
  • Protection offered via our multi-tiered, industry leading DDOS protection and mitigation solution
  • Greater choice, flexibility, network resilience, cost-saving and speed to market

1. Power

  • Up to 7.2kW of power per rack
  • Rack power is delivered via two distinct feeds
  • UPS system with N+1 redundancy
  • At least 15 mins of UPS battery autonomy with at full load.
  • 4 x Generators with N+1 redundancy
  • 148 hours of generator autonomy (36 hours of onsite storage)

2. Cooling

  • A strong HVAC system which safeguards:
    • Stable airflow
    • Temperature and humidity control
  • Uses independents CRACs and split type units.
  • Minimum N+2 redundancies for all major equipment
  • Hot aisle/cold aisle zone design, with the possibility of closed cold corridors

3. Fire Detection and Suppression

  • Very Early Smoke Detection and Alarms (VESDA) coupled with multi-zoned smoke detectors
  • Multi-zoned FM-200 or Argonite fire suppression system that kicks into action immediately on smoke or fire detection.
  • Fully addressable, 2-stage, fire detection system that monitors both rooms and under-floors 

4. Physical Security

Security is one of our foremost concerns, and highlevel security equipment and procedures are in place at all times and across all our data centres. Measures include:

  • Monitoring and CCTV recording throughout the buildings, including in customer care areas, with all access points constantly controlled
  • Visitor screening, with identities verified and individuals escorted to the appropriate locations
  • Access history recordings, which are kept for customer audits when requested or required.

1. Power

A multi-tiered system is in place to maximise uptime availability at BMIT, and our redundant rack power is delivered via two distinct feeds. Each is further secured by an N+1 Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system, which prevents against brownouts, surges and power spikes, as well as an N+1 generator setup to protect against utility failure.

2. Cooling

A strong HVAC system which safeguards:

  • Stable airflow
  • Temperature and humidity control 
  • Minimum N+2 redundancies for all major equipment.

3. Fire Detection and Suppression

Each data centre area has a multi-zoned FM-200 or Argonite fire suppression system that kicks into action the second smoke or fire is detected. Fire detection is carried out through multi-zoned smoke detectors coupled with Very Early Smoke Detection and Alarm (VESDA) systems.
