The company has responded to industry demands for disaster recovery services.

Internet Vikings has opened a second data center location in the state of Delaware. This is the company’s latest move in extending its reach within the sports betting and iGaming markets.

The new center will allow Internet Vikings to “deliver reliable and always-on disaster recovery services to operators” statewide.

The company opened its first center in West Virginia last fall, in response to “industry demands for disaster recovery in light of the increased risk of ransomware attacks.”

Internet Vikings noted in an official statement that opening a second data center in Delaware “is a company response to increasing industry demands for stability and reliability within the region.”

Company CTO Kristoffer Ottosson summarized the decision to open a data center in Delaware by saying, "Our clients require absolute assurance that their platforms will operate seamlessly, irrespective of unforeseen circumstances.

“This impelled our decision to bolster our presence in Delaware with a second data center, providing premium redundancy and performance."

Internet Vikings Founder and CEO Rickard Vikström further explained the importance of establishing a second data center location.

He commented, “Considering the heightened risk posed by ransomware attacks and the significant financial losses they incur, disaster recovery has emerged as a strategic priority for numerous gaming companies.

“Our second data center in Delaware strengthens the disaster recovery capacity in the region, offering the industry the highest level of security and infrastructure.”

Internet Vikings offers its platform in more than 30 US states. The company launched in both Kentucky and North Carolina last year.

The group said the expansion “reaffirms its commitment to meeting the evolving needs of the industry.”
