Continent 8 Technologies, the trusted partner and provider of global managed hosting, connectivity, cloud and cybersecurity solutions to the regulated iGaming and online sports betting market, has expanded its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), chosen as an official solutions provider in the Solution Provider Program (SPP) by AWS.

Over the past 25-plus years, Continent 8 has earned an unrivalled reputation for reliable infrastructure and connectivity, innovating, developing and providing customers with best-in-class managed and professional services to support the most demanding online requirements.

Now, as an SPP member, this enhanced AWS collaboration will enable Continent 8 to introduce a new range of services to simplify the management of AWS cloud environments and infrastructures. The new managed and professional services include:

Regul8 Guardrails

Regulatory compliance is non-negotiable in the betting and gaming industry. The tailormade Regul8 Guardrails solution provides customers with customised designs and configurations for easy-to-integrate compliance across cloud environments while accelerating time-to-market and expansion into new jurisdictions.

Kubernetes Everywhere

Migrating and managing Kubernetes across different cloud environments can be difficult. The Kubernetes Everywhere service makes it easy for customers to manage their containerised deployments, ensuring consistent, resource-friendly and cost-effective operation across cloud environments, data centers, edge computing infrastructures and within AWS regions using Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).

Managed Hybrid Network

Managing hybrid and multi-cloud networks is a complex task. By integrating Continent 8 and AWS networks, the managed network services address the connectivity challenges between on-premises infrastructures, AWS Outposts, enterprise networks and AWS Regions. This service ensures customers benefit from the most resilient and secure hybrid cloud connectivity path, away from the public Internet.

Managed AWS Outposts

Continent 8 is the trusted advanced partner in delivering 90% of AWS Outposts to the biggest brands – including FanDuel and Hard Rock Digital – in the regulated betting and gaming market. Building upon this AWS Outposts portfolio, the new Managed AWS Outposts service streamlines the procurement, logistics, workload migration and ongoing management of AWS Outposts, allowing customers to focus on launch activities. Continent 8 continues to provide best-in-class connectivity and seamless access to all AWS Direct Connect (DX) on-ramp locations.

Complementing these new cloud offerings is a dedicated team of over 30 AWS-certified and AWS-trained experts available to deliver and support high-touch AWS solutions tailored to each customer’s unique requirements.

Edward O’Connor, Chief Technology Officer, Continent 8 Technologies said:

“The AWS Solution Partner Program milestone underscores Continent 8’s commitment to continuing its position as the service and solutions provider of choice to the iGaming and online sports betting market. Whether it’s hyperscale, hybrid, public or private cloud management, Continent 8 remains steadfast in delivering trusted, bespoke, best-practice and value-added cloud experiences for our customers.”
