More expansion for Continent 8

Continent 8 Technologies, the eGaming provider of colocation, managed services and network solutions, is expanding its operations further in 2013.


In recent years the company has added to its distributed global network of data centres and now has nine around the world, with Montreal servicing the Americas and Singapore covering Asia.


Due to the eGaming regulatory landscape, the main concentration of data centres is in Europe with centres in London, Isle of Man, Paris, Dublin, Gibraltar, Malta and Guernsey.


In the latter part of 2012 the company signed agreements to add data centre space in Dublin and Guernsey in the first quarter of 2013.


Michael Tobin, CEO, said that the Dublin data centre added a new dimension to the services the company could offer. “Dublin is an ideal location offering separation of services, such as front-end website hosting, development or pre-production testing, while maintaining connectivity via our MPLS backbone to the regulated parts of a gaming infrastructure.”


He added that Dublin was an easy choice. “Dublin is a tier-one city that has benefitted from considerable investment in infrastructure and has become a centre for a wide range of international high-tech companies.


“The addition of the Guernsey data centre to service Alderney licensees completes our offer across the major European eGaming jurisdictions. Our decision to establish a data centre operation in Guernsey was once again led by customer demands and requirements.”


Both Dublin and Guernsey data centres provide a comprehensive suite of services and solutions from traditional co-location to fully managed solutions, designed to meet organisations’ needs now and into the future.
