Our data centre in Montreal has been in operation for over 13 years now, servicing many of the largest gaming operators and software providers in the industry. The top 8 poker companies (reference: Poker Scout) built their business in the Continent 8 data centre, located on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, 15 minutes from both Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport and downtown Montreal, from initial start-up to where they are today.
Continent 8 helped these businesses become successful through commercial and technical partnership created specifically to suit the stringent challenges faced by gaming operators and networks.
It is an ideal location for operators wishing to service either a global marketplace from one location, or the Americas. Continent 8’s data centre proximity to Montreal allows for direct access to the extensive transportation and telecommunications services of the Montreal region. Montreal is situated on a high quality fibre backbone for the eastern seaboard of North America.
