Cobalt Data Centers, a leading data center developer and colocation operator, announced today that its facility in northwest Las Vegas has been approved by the State of Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) to host regulated applications for gaming licensees. Casinos in Nevada are now able to operate mission-critical gaming applications, including authorized wagering systems and other business infrastructure, off-premise at Cobalt’s state-of-the-art data center.

Commissioned in 2013, Cobalt’s flagship data center, Cobalt Cheyenne, features the latest in redundant systems architecture, energy-efficient design, multi-factor security and customer amenities. Cobalt operates the facility in accordance with standards set forth by Uptime Institute for Tier III data centers and in compliance with its AICPA SSAE 16 auditors examination. Gaming licensees can now take advantage of these robust systems and rigorous operational controls.

“Some of the biggest casinos on the Strip already trust Cobalt to host their non-gaming applications. With our NGCB registration, Cobalt becomes the one-stop, full-service hosting partner for licensees and unlocks all sorts of strategic options for an industry so vital to our State. This is an exciting and progressive leap forward for gaming in Nevada.”
