Continent 8 Technologies Receives Prestigious NJBIZ Award
Provider of managed hosting, cloud and security solutions to businesses in New Jersey and beyond recognised by business media powerhouse.
March 31, 2023 – Continent 8 Technologies is proud to announce that it has been named a 2023 Leaders in Digital Technology honoree by NJBIZ, the number one business media brand in New Jersey.
The recognition comes as the infrastructure provider to the online gambling industry continues to strengthen its presence in the Garden State.
The NJBIZ award is a testament to Continent 8’s commitment to New Jersey, where the company has invested millions of dollars into providing a state-of-the-art data center for online gambling operators and suppliers active in the market and more broadly across North America.
Opened in 2019 in collaboration with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), the data center is housed within the Atlantic City Convention Centre. It is the only independent, licensed facility in the state that can house online gaming infrastructure outside of a licensed casino.
The full range of Continent 8’s global services are delivered directly to the Atlantic City data center, enabling local and global cloud hosting and connectivity. This includes private, public and hyperscale solutions, through to the full management of a customer’s own infrastructure.
Compliant with state and international security standards, it connects directly to Continent 8’s unique global private network of more than 90 locations across the world, including 25 US states and counting.
The facility has helped New Jersey to emerge as a hub for online sports betting and iGaming in the United States, creating a billion-dollar local industry.
Michael Tobin, CEO and Founder at Continent 8, said: “It is an honor to receive this award from NJBIZ and to be recognised for our commitment to the state of New Jersey and the part we have played in developing a hugely successful industry around regulated online gambling.
“Infrastructure is the foundation for any online business, and our Atlantic City site allows our customers to access cutting-edge technologies to ensure the smooth and seamless running of their business. Of course, the site, and the stages of expansion we have rolled out, would not be possible without the support of the state and in particular the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.
“We have achieved incredible things already with a lot more to come as we get ready to open the doors to our third expansion, with a modular addition to the site. This award is a really great way to mark this – I would like to extend a huge thank you to all involved.”
The NJBIZ award has been announced just weeks before Continent 8 cuts the ribbon on stage three of its New Jersey data centre. This is a 5,530 sq. ft modular addition, adding 30% more capacity off the back of customer demand.
The virtual awards ceremony took place on March 30. The full list of this year’s NJBIZ Leaders in Digital Technology honorees can be found here:
