CONTINENT 8 has announced the launch of its suite of hosting and managed service offerings to the New Jersey market, bringing its total of data centre offerings worldwide to 10.
Prior to the recent introduction of online gaming regulations, Continent 8 has been working with all facets of the industry in New Jersey to bring a neutral co-location and managed services offering to the market. Continent 8 has established a hosting centre in one of the licensed premises in Atlantic City and this offers the benefit of allowing operators and providers to serve multiple locations and brands from one independent location into the newly regulated market.
From that hosting location in Atlantic City, the company will bring its full range of offerings to the market. As with other Continent 8 offerings around the world, Atlantic City is being incorporated into the company’s global private backbone with diverse links into northern New Jersey and New York, thus allowing customers to link back into other markets and locations from which they operate.
In addition to the standard co-location and managed service offerings, Continent 8 is offering customers its DDoS (distributed denial of service) prevention and Cloud Backup services. Continent 8 has been offering DDoS prevention services to customers for many years and it represents an important offering to a new and evolving online gaming market.
In contrast, the new Cloud Backup service is based upon Asigra – a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore soft ware provider – and allows for flexible data-recovery options and the ability to support rigorous data-compliance requirements for the online gaming sector.
