In fact, Cloud computing has demonstrate to help companies to make businesses more profitable and viable, whilst still simultaneously offering a high level of security.
How does this play out in iGaming?
Vasilije Skoro, Btobet’s Head of Product Develoement, stated: “There is a common misconception that when iGaming and betting companies choose a Cloud system, they are sacrificing their firm’s security. On the contrary, however, apart from being cheaper to operate, Cloud servers offer a higher level of security compared to their physical counterparts. Additionally, Btobet’s Cloud Solutions, offers the added benefit of full control over the system, allowing users to make any necessary adjustments in real-time.”
Skoro listed the most important points to consider when choosing a Cloud computing system for your business: “When using a Cloud server, the iGaming business won’t have to worry that its data is going to get mixed up with another user’s. Each and every operator is installed on its own independent frame, meaning that it is impossible for data to get mixed up. Having an IT ‘structure’ based on the Cloud means that the business can avoid the need to build and maintain expensive and bulky in-house computer infrastructures, offering a vast range of advantages which include but are not limited to: Self-service provisioning, elasticit - companies can scale up as computing needs increase, and then scale down once again as demands decrease, Pay per use, where computing resources are measured at a granular level, which means that businesses are only required to pay for the resources they use. Moreover, when choosing what Cloud server to use for your business, it is important to ensure that the provider possesses all the necessary ISO certifications to guarantee maximum data security.”
Btobet’s Head of Product Development, highlighted how the Cloud computing supports the growth and diversity: “Technology has advanced significantly over the years and will continue to change rapidly, which is why businesses need to start evolving in their approach. A few typical examples include: operators adding sportsbooks as part of their offers, and land-based operators deciding to also operate online. With its scalability and flexibility, a Cloud operating system facilitates these choices with great efficiency. This way, companies can focus more on the important things; such as getting to know their players and actually running their businesses.”
Most evolved platforms, have to be supported specifically through the Cloud, guaranteeing an advanced level of scalability and flexibility for any type of iGaming and betting operator.
Skoro concluded: “A professional software company – like Btobet – offers effective Cloud management systems to the iGaming and betting industry assisting companies in many different areas, including the analysis of business requirements, development, application management and operations, server management and hosting.“
