Wednesday May 7,2014 : CONTINENT 8 OPENS DATA CENTRE IN NEW JERSEY
Establishment is the Isle of Man company's tenth international operation.
The Isle of Man headquartered Continent 8 Technologies has announced the launch of its suite of hosting and managed service offerings to the New Jersey market …the company’s tenth data centre offering worldwide.
From the new data centre in Atlantic City, Continent 8 now supplies a full range of offerings to the market. As with other Continent 8 data centres in places such as London, Dublin, Gibraltar, Malta, Paris, Guernsey, Isle of Man and Montreal, Atlantic City is incorporated into the company’s global private backbone with diverse links into northern New Jersey and New York.
This allows customers to link back into other markets and locations from which they operate.
In addition to the standard co-location and managed service offerings, Continent 8 is offering customers its DDoS Prevention and Cloud Backup services.
Nick Nally, Chief Development Officer of Continent 8 explained Wednesday; “We are constantly called upon by our customers to assist them as they navigate changing technical, commercial, and regulatory environments. In turn, our customers lead us to opportunities and help shape our corporate and product development. It is a mutually beneficial environment where ideas are exchanged and innovation occurs.”
Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8, added; “This cooperation is no more evident than in New Jersey where prior to the introduction of online gaming regulations, we worked with all facets of the industry in the State to bring a neutral co-location and managed services offering to the market that benefitted all involved. As a result Continent 8 has established a hosting centre in one of the licensed premises in Atlantic City.”
In April the company received its Transactional Waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, allowing the company to offer services into the newly regulated online gambling market.
Nally explained one of the key elements of the waiver; “This allows operators and providers to serve multiple locations and brands from one independent location into the newly regulated market.”
“This is one of the most significant milestones in Continent 8’s ongoing global expansion," said Tobin. "In addition to our growing New Jersey customer base, we can really start marketing our offering to help make Atlantic City a technology hub for the inevitable growth of the online gaming industry in the USA.”
