Online Gambling Bet365 Hires GemStone Systems

Published Monday, May 25, 2009 -

Bet365 Casino is an offshoot of the UK-based sportsbook Bet365. This operation is heavily UK-focused, and as such may not be a well-known brand to those based outside of the United Kingdom. This casino operates using Playtech software. Today Bet365, has selected GemStone Systems' high-performance data management solutions, as part of a critical IT infrastructure expansion to support the company's growth.

GemStone claims Bet365 will now realise benefits that include exponentially faster processing of the thousands of transactions conducted via its online portal, with the assurance that these transactions will be processed reliably and without failure even in the case of a disaster or unforeseen events.

The company required an expansion of its technology infrastructure to support the increase in Bet 365's activity. After evaluating several competing solutions, Martin Davies, chief technology officer for Bet365, decided that the GemFire platform offered the ability to process transactions quickly.

Davies said, "Working with the GemFire engineers, GemStone proved that its technology had the scale, flexibility and reliability to make our systems our strength," adding "They were responsive to our demands at every step of the selection and testing process, and I am confident that GemFire will enable us to scale our data infrastructure to meet the growing demands of our business. I look forward to working with them as we roll out the platform and continue to provide our customers with the online gambling experience they demand."

Richard Lamb, CEO of GemStone, stated, "Any company that relies on enormous stores of data requires fast, reliable processing of that data in order to turn it from a business necessity into a business advantage," Lamb concluded, "Bet365 now joins more than 200 firms worldwide that have successfully achieved this. Our GemFire platform will enable them to realise the tangible benefits that result from optimising their data infrastructure to support the growth of their business, and we look forward to working with them in their continued success."
