Online operator PokerStars has agreed a three-year hosting contract with Isle of Man telecommunications firm Manx Telecom.
A total of 48 data hosting racks and associated equipment are to be moved from their current location in Dublin to Manx Telecom’s Tier 3 Greenhill Data Centre.
PokerStars has made use of Manx Telecom’s services since 2005.
Gary Hill, director of IT operations at PokerStars, said: “Being offline costs money, that’s why we rely on a world class hosting provider who can provide hosting which meets the highest standards of quality, security and resilience.
“We’re delighted to award this new contract to Manx Telecom and extend our association with a trusted business partner.”
Manx Telcom CEO Gary Lamb commented: “This new PokerStars contract is excellent news for Manx Telecom and enhances our global reputation as a world class hosting provider, but it’s also great news for the Isle of Man’s e-gaming sector and economy.”
