Overview

Inspired Entertainment is a business-to-business provider of online gaming solutions. The company is recognized as a premier provider of virtual sports — such as horse and car racing and sports games — available as scheduled events as well as on-demand. Inspired serves the UK and European markets from data centers in Gibraltar, and recently built infrastructure in New Jersey to serve the U.S. market.

When Inspired planned its entry into the Canadian market, management sought an established service provider with in-country data centers and proven disaster recovery capabilities. Today, Sungard AS hosts the company's primary and DR infrastructure from two Sungard AS data centers near Toronto to assure a quality experience for Inspired's customers across Canada — including its recent rollout to Loto-Québec.
