Following the imminent introduction of gaming regulation in the Portuguese market, Continent 8, the leading provider of managed hosting solutions to the online gaming industry, has once again maintained its promise to be an end-to-end global provider to our customers by launching our full suite of services based out of Lisbon.
Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8 states, “We have opened the doors to our newest data centre location in readiness for the go live date of the new Portuguese regulation with first customers already live.”
Diverse geographical routes into Continent 8’s private and highly secure location connects the Lisbon facility to the company’s Global backbone which connects to 12 data centre locations and geographically diverse network points of presence across three continents.
