Continent 8 Enhances Cloud Connect with Cloudflare Partnership

Continent 8 Technologies, provider of managed hosting, connectivity, cloud, and security solutions for the global online gambling industry, has announced a enhancement to its Cloud Connect solution through a strategic partnership with Cloudflare.

Strengthening Cloud Connect

The partnership enables a direct, private, and secure connection between Continent 8’s infrastructure and Cloudflare, a cloud service provider. This integration is designed to benefit customers by significantly reducing the public attack surface while ensuring the highest level of reachability with the shortest possible route (“hop”) between infrastructure and cloud services.

Continent 8’s commitment to providing connectivity solutions is evident in its long-standing Cloud Connect service, which was launched over six years ago. This service facilitates access not only to Cloudflare but also to other major cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure.

Executive Insights

Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, emphasized the importance of the collaboration, stating: “Growing our product suite by partnering with Cloudflare enables both of us to offer customers the most secure, fast, and efficient connectivity. It is partnerships such as this that have allowed Continent 8 to become the go-to infrastructure and cloud provider for operators and suppliers in the global online gambling industry, providing a one-stop-shop for customer needs.”

Edward O’Connor, Chief Technology Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, detailed the technical collaboration: “Working together, Cloudflare and Continent 8 network architecture teams were able to utilize both our large global networks to identify key points of presence (POPs) where we can interface and exchange private routes for use by our customers, expanding our Cloud Connect capability. This is a powerful partnership between two leaders in the infrastructure space and one that allows Continent 8 to bring tremendous added value to its customers.”
