Continent 8 has expanded its reach in the online sports betting industry in the US, bringing its iGaming Cloud to Ohio.
Aiming to deliver a ‘first-to-market- approach, Continent 8’s igaming cloud is a public community cloud product specifically built for igaming and is already live in several igaming states including New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
The cloud solution offers operators and suppliers in Ohio scalable infrastructure to host virtual servers, computers, containers, storage and network edge services.
David Brace, Innovation Director at Continent 8 Technologies, commented: “We are proud to be the first service provider to offer an iGaming Public Cloud solution in the state of Ohio.
“In terms of market entry, cloud offers businesses the quickest and simplest route into a new state. This is true both for new entrants, as well as licensees who utilise the Continent 8 iGaming Cloud in other jurisdictions.
“The flexibility and scalability of the iGaming Cloud provides a range of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery options for those already live in the state and looking to protect their platforms.”
The solution is made available to all OCCC licensed operators and suppliers, who can utilize the iGaming Cloud’s storage network and server solutions.
The tech firm already has a presence in Ohio, where it also offers a data center, network connectivity and cyber security solutions.
Ohio is the 25th state that the firm has its Cloud technology, with further expansion plans in the pipeline for the coming months.
Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, added: “Expanding our iGaming Public Cloud capability and enabling fast market entry for our customers is an important part of our overall cloud, security and connectivity growth strategy.
“We understand the power of the first-mover, pay-as-you-grow advantage in such highly competitive states and markets, and strive to offer this to our customers.”
