Wednesday 02.05.2014 : CONTINENT 8 OFFER NEW JERSEY HOSTING
Tenth data centre established worldwide
Continent 8 Technologies has announced the launch of its suite of hosting and managed service offerings to the New Jersey market, bringing to 10 the Isle of Man company’s data centre offerings worldwide.
A company spokesman said Wednesday that prior to the introduction of the recently introduced New Jersey online gaming regulations, Continent 8 has been working with all facets of the industry in the Garden State to bring a neutral co-location and managed services offering to the market.
Continent 8 has established a hosting centre in one of the licensed premises in Atlantic City and this offers the benefit of allowing operators and providers to serve multiple locations and brands from one independent location into the newly regulated market.
From its unspecified hosting location in Atlantic City, Continent 8 will bring its full range of offerings to the market. As with other offerings around the world, the Atlantic City product is being incorporated into Continent 8’s global private backbone with diverse links into Northern New Jersey and New York, thus allowing 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. The company has been offering DDoS prevention services to its customer base for many years and this is an important product for a new and evolving online gaming market.
In contrast, Continent 8’s new Cloud Backup service is based upon Asigra, a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider that allows for flexible data recovery options and the ability to support rigorous data compliance requirements for the online gaming sector.
