Continent 8 Technologies has won the prestigious ‘Data Centre of the Year’ award for the seventh consecutive year at the EGR B2B Awards at The Pavilion, Tower of London on Wednesday 1st June 2016.
The EGR B2B Awards now in its seventh year, continue to reward and celebrate the very best service providers in the online gaming industry, recognising the achievements of suppliers from across all the major eGaming disciplines including betting and gaming software, networks, mobile, payments, recruitment, IT and infrastructure.
Peter Williams, Director of Global Sales who collected the award along with Nick Nally, Chief Development Officer, said “To win the award once is an honour but to win it seven years in a row is testament to how our industry peers value our contribution to eGaming and more importantly how they see us as a valued and trusted partner.”
Nick added “This award would not be possible if it wasn’t for the expanding Continent 8 team across our global locations, the team works tirelessly to identify and develop new products and services. This year alone we have added two new data centre locations, launched Cloud Connect and expanded our Cloud Backup to two additional locations.”
Peter continued “This product and service roll out will not stop here, we open our second data centre in Malta at the end of July and we will be expanding our private global network into Asia later this year”
Continent 8 CEO, Michael Tobin said “Despite the aggressive M&A activity within the sector Continent 8 has not only maintained its customer base but increased this in both numbers and turnover. I believe that the key to our success lies in our understanding of our clients’ business, and this in turn dictates our service approach. Our partnerships with companies such as Equinix, Arbor and Asigra continue to grow and has enabled us to roll out new customer focused products during the last 12 months with more in the pipeline.”
Continent 8 has been supporting the global eGaming and eBusiness industries for almost twenty years and now operates in three continents with twelve strategically located data centres linked by a single private global network.
