Continent 8 expands in US with Ocean Resort data facility

Online gaming data centre specialist Continent 8 Technologies has opened a new data facility at the Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

This is the second Atlantic City location for Continent 8, which is licensed to operate in the state by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

This expansion is a response to the demand generated by the passing of sports
betting legislation in New Jersey, the company said. A third Atlantic City venue is also planned, to provide additional secure data redundancy and disaster recovery.

The Ocean Resort centre also connects to Continent 8’s Pennsylvania and Nevada locations as the company continues to expand its US network in line with the growing gaming market.

“The opening of the Ocean Resort is a major development for the renewal of Atlantic City,” said Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8.

“The new data centre provides independent, licensed infrastructure and cyber-security services for online gaming operators, particularly sports betting providers. Utilising our connected and secured global network allows multi-state customer data to be consolidated in New Jersey, leading to reduced costs and increased service availability to users.”
