Interxion's data centers are the ideal home base for your iGaming infrastructure

iGaming operators are increasingly faced with higher user experience and regulatory requirements. This means that their online platform must be accessible at all times and must be able to guarantee an optimal user experience (UX). In addition, the strict requirements of legislation must also be taken into account in order for users to be able to play safely. 

Optimal user experience & compliance with online gambling legislation
These challenges in the iGaming Industry require a strong foundation of the IT infrastructure, i.e. a reliable and secure place to house the iGaming systems.  
Interxion already offers 6 of the top 10 global iGaming operators the ideal home base for their iGaming infrastructure. These providers choose Interxion's innovatively designed data centers because of their strict physical security, extensive connectivity capabilities, certifications, and extensibility to several new markets under the same conditions.

The best location for your control database to meet regulatory requirements

Online gambling legislation in the Netherlands has changed. The Dutch government has adopted the Distance Gambling Act, as a result of which the Dutch market for online games of chance is expected to open as of 2021. In order to obtain a license and offer online games of chance on the Dutch market, the gaming authority requires that iGaming operators set up a control database (CDB) and place it in the Netherlands. 

The 13 Interxion & Digital Realty data centres in Amsterdam, offer a safe place for the CDB and all confidential data to be stored and exchanged. In addition, the many reliable connection possibilities within the data centre make it possible to exchange this data in (near) real time with the Gaming Authority and the Tax and Customs Administration. Finally, Interxion applies very strict security procedures and can help you to meet the (physical) access requirements and to report this. Please read our iGaming whitepaper to read more.

Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

The public cloud is increasingly being used in the iGaming industry. This is done, for example, to provide an optimal user experience during peak moments in online betting, or for testing new games and functionalities. However, connecting to the public cloud through the internet brings peformance and security challenges. Interxion therefore offers the possibility to securely and directly connect to public cloud platforms such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud outside the internet, within its data centers.
