May 1, 2024 | Sarah Blackburn

Fanatics Betting and Gaming is utilising Continent 8 Technologies to deploy a digital infrastructure as it continues its growth across the regulated US online sports betting and online casino market.

Fanatics uses Continent 8’s digital infrastructure solutions to deliver a “seamless player experience” in the US. This includes hosting all of its in-state data centres through AWS Outposts.

Continent 8 is supporting Fanatics by managing on-premises infrastructure and services in 20 states across the US, including Michigan, New York, Vermont and West Virginia.

Continent 8 has one of the largest connected networks in the world, spanning over 100 locations across four continents, including 30 US states and counting.

The operator has also signed up for Continent 8’s Gaming Exchange. This is a private internet that allows Continent 8’s customers to connect securely via a virtual private network (VPN) across its backbone network. This enables customers to share traffic at the lowest latency, securely and privately.
