US – Continent 8 launches Gaming Cloud in PennsylvaniaBy William - 19 April 2022
Continent 8 Technologies has been given the green light by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to launch its regulated Gaming Cloud to operators and suppliers in the state.
Continent 8’s Gaming Cloud is a Public Cloud already available to customers in a number of other regulated North American locations including New Jersey (Atlantic City) and, most recently, Ontario.
It offers a multi-tenanted, scalable and resilient IaaS platform that allows customers to host infrastructure as Virtual Machines.
Nick Nally, Managing Director of Americas, commented: “Receiving approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for our Gaming Cloud forms part of our aggressive strategy to deliver our regulated cloud to multiple new states in the US, as demand for our cloud solutions continues to rise.”
For Pennsylvania, regulations state that tenants in the Gaming Cloud must be licensed by the PGCB and hardware comprising the Gaming Cloud must be located at the primary and backup locations Continent 8 provides in the state.
The approval of a regulated Public Cloud adds to Continent 8’s existing services in Pennsylvania, which today comprises three data centres and points of presence.
Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer, added: “We are proud to be the first service provider to offer this regulated community cloud solution in the state; we understand the power of the first-mover, pay-as-you-grow advantage in such highly competitive states and markets.”
