Continent 8 and Gibraltar have been working together since 2011, and the new contract covering data centre hosting services will run until 2027.
The group has been providing the solutions and capacity required via its secure data centre, located 500 metres deep within the Rock in a former Ministry of Defence facility.
David Black, Managing Director of EMEA at Continent 8 Technologies, said: “We are delighted to be chosen by the Government of Gibraltar to be the trusted hosting partner of its critical infrastructure for the next five years. It was a competitive tender process, but ultimately our solution emerged as the strongest.
“Buried deep within the Rock of Gibraltar in a former MoD facility, our world-class Gibraltar data centre is unrivalled in the level of security it offers our customers. This, combined with our suite of solutions from managed hosting to public and private cloud, make us the go-to infrastructure partner for local and international businesses.
“While we are a global business that spans more than 85 connected locations around the world, we deliver highly localised solutions in the markets we operate and will continue to take this approach as we deploy our ambitious international expansion plans.”
Earlier this month, Continent 8 Technologies appointed Kristian Valenta as the new CFO, making him responsible for the company’s overall finances.
Additionally, back in June, CEO Tobin discussed the group’s plans for the future in an interview for GI Huddle, while this week CPO Justin Cosnett also joined the Huddle.
