Continent 8 Technologies is continuing its North American growth strategy by launching additional site service capabilities in the states of Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, and Louisiana and the US territory of Puerto Rico.

The hosting, connectivity, cloud and security provider launched its initial services in Iowa back in 2019, before Illinois in 2020, and Kansas and Louisiana in 2021. It opened its first site in Puerto Rico in 2022.

Each of these five markets now has an additional Continent 8 site, offering secondary and disaster recovery solutions.

This adds to Continent 8’s existing multi-site in-state infrastructure capability in the states of Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey (Atlantic City), and Pennsylvania.

Justin Cosnett, chief product officer at Continent 8, said: “Data centre resilience is an important consideration for infrastructure planning. We also know that regulators across various states want to see licensed operators deliver resilient and reliable services to customers and partners.

“We have built our offering so that operators and suppliers to the industry can use our diverse MPLS-connected backbone to create disaster recovery, back-up, or even active-active capabilities to guarantee availability.”

The multi-state infrastructure will also allow Continent 8 to offer its own off-site back-up service via a regulated Public iGaming Cloud solution.

The launching of additional US sites is likely to continue as new states regulate online gambling. The company appointed Kristian Valenta to the role of chief financial officer last year, with the aim of supporting continued growth.

The company spans 90 locations globally across four continents, including 25 US states.
