Continent 8 Technologies Has Been Appointed an AWS Select Consulting Partner
Continent 8 Technologies has been designated as an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Select Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), allowing it to extend its capabilities and competencies to better serve iGaming operators and suppliers with cloud, networking, and security needs.
Continent 8 Signs with AWS Partner Network
The APN is a global network of collaborators who use AWS to create products and services for their clients.
Continent 8 earned recognition after completing extensive business planning, preparation, and qualification requirements to become an AWS Select Consulting Partner, as well as assisting customers with the implementation of AWS services and solutions.
Continent 8 recently assisted many iGaming customers in the United States with the delivery and hosting of AWS Outposts, establishing an AWS Outpost Enablement Package that includes a distribution team to lead, coordinate, and support the deployment from pre-install to go-live.
Last year Amelco signed a deal with Continent 8 Technologies according to which the company can use Continent 8’s network of data centers to handle its activities and provide hosting, networking, and cybersecurity services to its clients in a regulatory-compliant manner, according to the terms of the agreement.
Continent 8 Tools and Goals
To meet customer demand, Continent 8 also provides Network Edge Services (NEaaS) to provide all of the features needed to link the AWS Outpost to the internet (in-jurisdiction and Tier 1 peering) and to AWS (privately or publicly).
Head of cloud architecture at Continent 8 Technologies, Keith Stafford, said: “Joining the APN and being recognized as an AWS Select Consulting Partner is a strategic step for Continent 8.”
Stafford continued his statement by saying that this partnership allows Continent 8 to assist its clients in accelerating the adoption of cloud technology, demonstrating the company’s dedication to providing the best available products and services to iGaming companies in markets all over the world, including the rapidly expanding US market.
Continent 8 will continue to work with AWS on additional value-add services across its AWS Outpost offering and to further extend its capabilities and competencies through cloud solutions, networking, and security now that it has been recognized as an AWS Select Consulting Partner.
This is in line with the company’s goal of being a Multi-Cloud Solution Partner for iGaming companies, allowing them to “Connect, Manage, and Secure” their cloud environments.
