Leading provider of managed hosting, connectivity and security solutions to the global gambling industry, Continent 8, has expanded its Atlantic City data centre footprint, adding 30% more capacity.

The stage three expansion, approved by the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), has seen a 5,330sqft Modular Data Centre (MDC) added to the site.

The official opening took place on Tuesday April 18th, ahead of the East Coast Gaming Congress on April 19th. It was attended by key stakeholders, politicians, Continent 8 customers and members of the press. This included Atlantic City Mayor, Marty Small, Senator Vince Polistina, Assemblyman Don Guardian, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, Sean Patwell, Lead Engineer of the Technical Services Bureau with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, Afshien Lashkari and Chairman of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, Jim Plousis.

Housed within the landmark Atlantic City Convention Centre, Continent 8’s cutting-edge tier three data centre is the only one in the state that has been purpose-built for the online gambling industry. Today the data centre covers 15,000sqft with around 120 equipment racks. It offers a unique independent hosting site compliant with international security standards with multi-state interconnection across the US and directly into a global, private network of more than 90 locations across four continents, including over 25 US states.

The full range of Continent 8’s global services is being delivered directly to the Atlantic City data centre, enabling local and global cloud hosting and connectivity. This includes private, public and hybrid cloud services through to the full management of a customer’s own infrastructure.

Michael Tobin, Founder & CEO at Continent 8, says: “It was a privilege to welcome so many stakeholders and all those involved in the Phase 3 expansion to our official opening.

“We are incredibly proud of the hub we have built in Atlantic City, creating an economic catalyst for South Jersey, and establishing a data centre that enables companies in iGaming and beyond to connect to a global network.”
