New Data Centre and a 40Gbps connectivity for BMIT

Over 150 racks have already been put in place at this new facility located within SmartCity Malta, which is rapidly becoming a business hotspot on the island

BMIT, Malta’s leading provider of data centre, cloud and managed IT services, has just announced the completion of two major investments, which are posed to drastically enhance Malta’s offering as a jurisdiction of choice to several industries, including online gaming and financial services operators. These are the opening of a data centre in SmartCity Malta and the launch of a new exclusive and secure private network which will provide BMIT customers with very high speed connectivity and performance to the Internet. 

This one-of-a-kind network links BMIT’s locations in Malta to its newly-launched points of presence in Italy and Germany and provides 40Gbps connectivity to the Internet, via two leading Tier 1 global providers – Level 3 and TeliaSonera.   

Over the years BMIT has also established itself as Malta’s largest and most experienced IT services provider of services to industries who have high dependency on being online all-time, such as iGaming, financial services, communications and similar-type segments – initially as a co-location and hosting services provider and more recently also as a provider of an extensive range of cloud and managed IT services.
