As part of its ongoing efforts to ensure Malta retains its position as a leading centre for the gaming industry, Melita Business continues to invest in systems, processes and collaborations which are designed to create the technology and communications infrastructure required. These include the creation of Smart Cloud, to provide managed data centre services located in Malta.  Smart Cloud leverages the expertise of Smart Technologies Limited in Cloud infrastructure and data services, and the reliability, connectivity and security provided by Melita Business from the state-of-the-art Melita Data Centre in Madliena.

Attendees at this week’s SiGMA Europe, taking place at the MFCC, will be able to learn more about the services provided by Smart Cloud and the particular advantages for gaming companies of having a Malta based provider for their Cloud hosting and data services. Key among these is compliance with the requirement by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) for companies to have a local database replica, making local data hosting vital. Additionally, by providing hosting within the EU, Gaming businesses can be reassured that their data is protected in accordance with European data protection and privacy laws.

Malcolm Briffa, Director of Business Services at Melita, explained why he is particularly looking forward to this year’s event, “It’s good to see SiGMA back as an in-person event, enabling people from across the industry to once again meet and exchange ideas.  Given the MGA requirements for Gaming operators, the Melita Business team are excited to explain the new services offered by Smart Cloud, and the range of benefits for operators of all sizes.”

Throughout SiGMA, executives wishing to learn more about local Cloud hosting services, nationwide fibre-to-the-office, or 5G mobile plans for their employees, can arrange a free consultation with the company’s team of industry experts and sales engineers. Appointments can be made by sending an email to Technical tours of the Melita Data Centre in Madliena can also be arranged.
