Purposely Built Site 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 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 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, ensuring it is excellently connected to the power grid. Local and international connectivity Melita runs a mature and fully redundant nationwide fibre optic network aimed at offering the very best class in connectivity services. Melita Madliena-based data centre is the only carrier-neutral facility in Malta, and it has been setup to provide customers with the best possible choice. Dedicated, high capacity point-to-point international circuits enable Melitaâ€™s customers to extend their network to any remote location in the world. These high capacity links can be delivered as a Layer 3 solution through IP transit, or as a point-to-point service over MPLS or a managed Ethernet. Traffic to mainland Europe is transited through multiple submarine cables out of Malta. These links are then interconnected to a redundant fibre optic backbone belonging to Melita’s partners in Italy, and which then connect onwards to all major hubs in Europe and beyond. Melita also has a direct point-of-presence (PoP) in Milan, where it peers with the world's largest Tier I internet providers, Level 3 and Telia. This allows Melita’s customers to benefit from enterprise-grade symmetric Internet connectivity from diverse providers at no contention, with low latency and at high speeds. Tailor made co-location solutions The Melita Data Centre has been built to Tier III specifications and in full adherence to any regulatory obligation. Melita offers a selection of colocation services from a 10U quarter cabinet to a full 42U private rack. Each rack is serviced with two diverse connectivity links and two distinct power sources. Each power source is connected to a different power grid, each with its own diverse UPS system and a diverse diesel generator. Customers may opt to ship their own selected equipment from overseas or procure the branded hardware of their choice directly from Melita. Melita will take care to rack-mount and manage the customer’s equipment. On-site support services are available on a 24/7 basis and work to a very strict Service Level Agreement (SLA).
