Flexential Approved as Hybrid IT Provider by the TEL to Support Online Sports Gaming Launch
Company to provide data center services starting next month, enabling operators to generate revenue to support education programs
Flexential, a leading provider of data center colocation, cloud and connectivity, announced the company received approval from the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation (TEL) as a vendor to provide data center services to online sports gaming operators and deliver critical IT infrastructure in Tennessee. Flexential received the first approval granted to a colocation operator by TEL. In addition, Flexential won approval in April 2020 to host technology-supporting sports gaming operations in its Colorado data centers.
“The online sports gaming operators need secure, highly available facilities for their applications to ensure safe transactions, maximum uptime and internet availability for end customers,” said Tom Myers, regional vice president of Flexential. “Flexential is the obvious choice because of our background, flexibility and reputation to support this launch by empowering the hybrid IT infrastructure of these online gaming companies. Sports gaming will generate billions of dollars in revenue. This ultimately supports the state of Tennessee’s educational programs and provides winnings to residents throughout the state who enjoy sports gaming.”

Tennessee passed legislation earlier this year allowing online sports gaming for the first time in the state’s history, mandating all transactions must take place within the confines of the state. Flexential’s three secure, compliant, and highly connected data centers located in the Nashville area meet all the requirements for working with the new gaming operations. Flexential will provide secure colocation and connectivity services, for online sports gaming companies to enable end customers to wager on sporting events via the internet, mobile device or other telecommunications platforms.
