High 5 Games and Continent 8 Technologies Finalise Gibraltar Data Solutions Agreement

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The contracts and agreements have been finalized; Continent 8 Technologies is officially High 5 Games' data centre solution in Gibraltar.  By choosing one of the most secure and well equipped hosting centres available, H5G is well positioned to flood the global iGaming markets with its premium portfolio of slot titles.  
 
In the last 6 months High 5 Games has been making significant headway in the European and UK markets and the company's business development team has been finalising a number of integration and managed solution agreements. The commitment to Continent 8 Technologies is one of many definitive steps in establishing a presence in Gibraltar.  Peter Williams, Director of Global Sales of Continent 8, said: "We are pleased to welcome High 5 Games, who operate the highest rated social casino on Facebook, on board as a new customer.  High 5 Games' choice of Continent 8 reflects our continued investment in our data centre footprint to provide our customers with a secure and reliable platform from which to operate and grow their business." 

Additionally, an office space has been sourced, the equipment purchase has been made, and H5G is in final talks with the GBGA, regarding its remote gaming software supplier license.

H5G games including Da Vinci Diamonds, Noah's Ark, and Golden Goddess have all been hugely successful in the European iGaming market through a small distribution deal with IGT. The popularity of these titles is proof of concept that H5G's extensive slot library slated to be introduced through VAULT, the company's remote game server, will have immediate success upon launch in Q4 2014. Once the Gibraltar gaming license is finalized, VAULT will provide a robust portfolio of nearly 100+ of H5G's premium video slot titles to European and UK iGaming operators seeking game changing content.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
