Our Data Centres

Madliena Primary Facility

Built to Tier III specifications, the Melita Primary Data Centre in Madliena is the only purpose-built facility in Malta. It covers a total fully-fenced footprint of 10,000m2, making it the island’s 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’s, ensuring it is excellently connected to the power grid.

Mriehel Secondary Facility

Our secondary Data Centre facility in Mriehel is built to the same strict technical specifications as our primary site in Madliena.

Strategically located within Melita’s Head Office in the fastgrowing Central Business Hub, the site is connected to our Madliena POP via two diverse high-capacity fibre optic cables fully owned and managed by Melita.
