Following the imminent introduction of gaming regulation in the Portuguese market, Continent 8, a major provider of managed hosting solutions to the online gaming industry, has again met its commitment to be an end-to-end global provider for customers by launching a full suite of services based out of Lisbon.
Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8 said Friday, "We have opened the doors to our newest data centre location in readiness for the go live date of the new Portuguese regulation, with the first customers already live."
Diverse geographical routes into Continent 8’s private and highly secure location connects the Lisbon facility to the company’s global backbone, which connects to 12 data centre locations and geographically diverse network points of presence across three continents.
Continent 8 customers can securely link all markets and locations from which they operate under a single, redundant network that provides predictable service levels and high availability, all with a single partner.
Peter Williams, Global Sales Director of Continent 8 said, “Continent 8’s strategy is to meet the regulatory requirements of our customers through the provision of services in all markets within which they operate. Expansion into new locations has always been driven by regulation and our customers’ requirements."
