Continent 8 Technologies has ramped up its operation in West Virginia by opening a second site in the Mountain State.

Located in Petersburg, the data center was built in partnership with the Seneca Rocks Regional Development Authority.

According to the infrastructure provider, the new data center will now allow it to offer true disaster recovery and enhanced business continuity as part of its range of solutions available to operators in the state.

As well as opening a new site, Continent 8’s Public Cloud Solution has also received approval from the gambling regulator in West Virginia. Currently live across the majority of regulated gaming states across the U.S., Public Cloud provides a multi-tenanted, scalable, and resilient IaaS platform that allows customers to host infrastructure as Virtual Machines. 

“We are thrilled to have added a second site, allowing us to expand our offering to include disaster recovery, as well as our approved Public Cloud solution in our original site, further establishing Continent 8 as the leading infrastructure provider in the North American market,” said Continent 8’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer Michael Tobin. “Infrastructure is the foundation operators and suppliers need to succeed, and that’s why the biggest players come to Continent 8. Our solutions, customer service, reputation and experience are unrivaled.”

Continent 8 is live across 30 states and works with over 20 brands in West Virginia through its site in South Charleston. It has had a presence in the state since 2018 which allowed operators in the state to go live when online sports betting began in August 2018.

Plans for further expansion

The company says it has significant investment planned to further expand its multi-site footprint across numerous states.

Most recently it went live in Vermont where it provides support to DraftKings, FanDuel and Fanatics Sportsbooks following the legalization of online sports betting in the state in June 2023.
