Internet Vikings, a global cloud hosting provider, has expanded into the US by offering licensed hosting to igaming operators in the state of West Virginia. This launch is the beginning of the company’s pivotal quest to provide hosting services in the near future to companies in all states where online gaming is legally permitted.
Internet Vikings will soon provide customizable hosting solutions, including 24 cores, 64 GB RAM, 500 GB storage, and 50 Mb bandwidth per month across 12 more states. They will begin with Michigan and Pennsylvania and then move on to New Jersey, Louisiana, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Illinois, and Virginia. But they have no intention of stopping there, with plans to continue setting up operations in every state which decides to introduce regulated online gaming.
Rickard Vikström, Founder and CCO of Internet Vikings, said: “We are excited to start our journey into the United States. It’s a huge challenge and wonderful opportunity for us. With this expansion we want to cement our position as a leading iGaming hosting provider on a global scale.”
Elena Kvakova, Head of US expansion at Internet Vikings, said: “Hosting has always been our strong suit and our main product. As we were learning the ins and outs of the gambling hosting regulations and market in the USA, we noticed a few things that could be done better. And to us, a Swedish company, an agile approach and customer focus are at the forefront of everything we do. That is what we are trying to do in the key states right now – set up secure, reliable, cost-effective and fully-formed hosting solutions, so that the new providers that are entering the U.S. market will be able to focus on other things.”
