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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood.

Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
