Gibraltar – On October 17th Continent 8 Technologies was honoured with a visit from HRH Prince Michael of Kent.
The Continent 8 Gibraltar Data Centre is housed within the decommissioned Operations Centre which was designed for secure and resilient operations providing an ideal location for use by General Dwight D. Eisenhower during World War II, now a modern Data Centre facility.
It was from here that General Eisenhower supervised Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of north Africa, in November 1942. More recently, the underground complex was also a key control site for NATO operations in the Falklands and the Gulf. Such impenetrable security ensured the security of British forces, as today it does for critical global data.
HRH conducted a visit to the Eisenhower Room, the old Operations Centre and took the opportunity to view newly commissioned Data Centre facilities within this historically significant location.
