NEW YORK, Oct. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Elys Game Technology, Corp. (“Elys” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: ELYS) (BER:3UW), an interactive gaming and sports betting technology company, today announced the successful installation of its North American server infrastructure located at the Continent 8 Data Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. The multimillion-dollar technology footprint establishes the hub of Elys’ platform in Ohio and extends its network across multiple spokes throughout North America.
Elys’ technology hardware and database equipment serve as the backbone of the Company’s mission-critical applications. The newly installed server infrastructure is equipped with intelligent storage, which allows autonomous operation to ensure predictable, scalable performance while delivering instant data access, all backed by a 100% availability guarantee. Meanwhile, the Company is working on obtaining regulatory approvals for the launch of tribal distribution in Michigan, North Dakota and New Mexico. Additionally, the Company plans to expand its non-tribal commercial operations in Washington D.C. and establish commercial operations in Ohio, Maryland and New Jersey. The Company is also exploring opportunities for future mobile operations in multiple U.S. states and Canadian provinces over the next six to eight months.
“Our strategic decision to host our infrastructure within Continent 8’s ISO 27001 & PCI certified iGaming Data Centers demonstrates our commitment to meeting the highest standards in colocation and compliance with regulatory requirements,” stated Michele Ciavarella, Executive Chairman of Elys Game Technology, Corp. “Each of these data centers is licensed and approved by local state regulators where necessary. This move is integral to the expansion of the Company’s Elys America brand and our leading-edge sportsbook products throughout the U.S. and Canada.”
“Our network has been purposefully designed for robust, redundant performance, tailored to meet the dynamic bandwidth needs of our applications and clients. This ensures seamless handling of high volumes of data traffic while ensuring uninterrupted service, even in the event of equipment failure. Such resilience is critical for online gaming platforms that demand real-time responsiveness.”
