Companies partner up to provide quality hosting service.
Isle of Man-based Continent 8 Technologies and Telehouse in France have formed a strategic partnership to deliver premium hosting services for e-gaming operators intending to launch activities in France.
The service is fully compliant with stringent French requirements as laid down by l’Autorité de Régulation des Jeux en Ligne (ARJEL), the French e-gaming regulatory body.
A Continent 8 spokesman said this week that following on from an extensive assessment of suitable hosting facilities and a competitive commercial model, the company had little difficulty in making Telehouse its partner of choice.
"Telehouse is one of the longest established providers of reliable and secure data centre facilities globally,” he said. “With over 30 years combined experience, this strategic partnership gives our clients ultimate reliability and a range of services specifically designed to serve the e-gaming community.
The hosting facility is branded Telehouse 3, and is located on a former military site with exceptional physical security at Magny-Les-Hameaux. Several Continent 8 customers have already taken up services.
The Continent 8 spokesman said that the partnership provides a platform for growth between Telehouse and Continent 8 and demonstrates a true partnership designed to deliver customer
solutions to address the e-gaming market within France. Earlier this year Continent 8 opened an office in France (see previous InfoPowa report).
“This partnership has been driven by the intimate understanding of our customers’ needs, and the ability to react to market, regulatory and technology changes,” he said.
Continent 8’s chief technology officer, John Stone, said “Continent 8 now hosts many customers in multiple data centres, thus allowing them to take advantage of distributed geographical footprints, disaster recovery services, a global private network and the ability to operate in multiple licensed jurisdictions under a single commercial model.”
Gilles Pecqueron, communication and marketing manager of Telehouse, said: “We are thrilled by this strategic partnership as we aim to become the number 1 data centre for online gaming operators in France.
“Continent 8’s extensive knowledge of the online gaming market and its technical expertise with respect to online gaming hosting combined with our connectivity, security and business continuity expertise, makes our partnership one of the best options for online gaming operators wishing to enter the French market.”
