Hosting provider Continent 8 Technologies has completed the expansion of its Isle of Man headquarters as part of a diversification strategy to offer more services to its growing customer base.
The upgrade programme has seen the firm double the capacity of the data centre facility and bring new personnel on board.
As part of the upgrade, Continent 8 has introduced air cooling, via a dedicated air handling unit (AHU). The firm used its recently opened data centre in Dublin, Ireland as a blueprint for the initiative.
“While we are looking forward to continuing our leading technical and visionary reputation within the online gaming industry, we are now diversifying outside of this niche sector,” head of product at Continent 8, Stephen Trimble, said.
“The data centre upgrade, alongside an aggressive product development roadmap, is key to showing that not only is Continent 8 truly global, but we are also investing heavily in and committed to the Isle of Man.”
