Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Cable & Wireless has signed a €400,000 deal to provide managed hosting for online gaming firm Gala Networks Europe (GNE) at its Dublin data centre.

The initial two-year contract covers building, hosting, management, and network connectivity for GNE's European online gaming platform.

GNE is part of the Gala Group, which has its global headquarters in Japan. GNE's games include titles such as Flyff, Space Cowboy Online, Rappelz, Corum Online and Upshift StrikeRacer. The Flyff game has over one million registered users.

"We wanted a reputable data centre partner that could provide us with the highest quality technical infrastructure and a scaleable platform to allow us to develop and grow our European gaming market. With always-on availability and high-levels of performance required, Cable & Wireless has given us a robust managed hosting solution with all the guaranteed levels of service that GNE and our gamers need," said Gus Hur, chief operating officer of GNE.

Cable & Wireless has six data centres across Ireland and the UK. Its Irish data centre is based in Clonshaugh, Dublin, and provides co-location, hosting, and managed services to Irish and international organisations.

"We are very pleased to welcome one of the global leaders in online gaming into our data centre. Our Dublin hosting facility proved to be the best fit for GNE as we have the expertise to build, monitor and future-proof GNE's investment as it expands its international gaming base. GNE's decision to choose Cable & Wireless is not only a vote of confidence in our capabilities, but also in Ireland as a hub for global internet companies," said Fergal McKenna, sales manager with Cable & Wireless.
