Continent 8 Technologies has expanded its partnership with Amazon Web Services and has been selected as an official solutions provider in the Solution Provider Program. 

Becoming an SPP member, the global managed hosting, connectivity, cloud and cybersecurity solutions provider noted that the enhanced AWS collaboration has allowed it to introduce a new variety of services to simplify AWS cloud environments and infrastructure management. 

Edward O’Connor, CTO at Continent 8 Technologies, stated: “The AWS Solution Partner Program milestone underscores Continent 8’s commitment to continuing its position as the service and solutions provider of choice to the igaming and online sports betting market.”

The new managed and professional services include Regul8 Guardrails, which provides customers with “customised designs and configurations for easy-to-integrate compliance across cloud environments while accelerating time-to-market and expansion into new jurisdictions”.

Meanwhile, the Managed Hybrid Network service will “address the connectivity challenges between on-premises infrastructures, AWS Outposts, enterprise networks and AWS Regions” to ensure customers benefit from a resilient and secure hybrid cloud connectivity path away from the public internet.

The Kubernetes Everywhere service will make it easier for “customers to manage their containerised deployments, ensuring consistent, resource-friendly and cost-effective operations across cloud environments, data centres, edge computing infrastructures and within AWS regions using Elastic Kubernetes Service”.

In addition, the Managed AWS Outposts will build upon Continent 8’s existing AWS Outposts portfolio with the likes of Fanatics, FanDuel and Hard Rock Digital to streamline the “procurement, logistics, workload migration and ongoing management of AWS Outposts, allowing customers to focus on launch activities”.

O’Connor continued: “Whether it’s hyperscale, hybrid, public or private cloud management, Continent 8 remains steadfast in delivering trusted, bespoke, best-practice and value-added cloud experiences for our customers.”

Continent 8 also complements its services with a dedicated team of more than 30 AWS-certified and AWS-trained experts to “deliver and support high-touch AWS solutions tailored to each customer’s unique requirements”.
