MTN has entered a collaboration with Wargaming.Net, an international game developer and publisher based in Cyprus, to which it will offer collocation services, MTN said in a statement Tuesday.
The service is a type of data centre where companies can rent equipment, space and bandwidth receiving server security, storage, space, power and cooling.
“Our collaboration with an energetic, world class company such as Wargaming more than justifies ΜΤΝ’s persistence in investing in technology, equipment and workforce, as we currently have one of the best Data Centers in the Eastern Mediterranean region,” MTN’s Chief Executive Officer Philip van Dalsen said.
The move came as a result of the entertainment giant’s decision to expand its network connectivity between Cyprus and their own international network using MTN Cyprus data centre facilities in Latsia, Nicosia.
“ΜΤΝ Business has provided Wargaming with the reliable and efficient solutions they were looking for in Cyprus in accommodating the needs of the company’s extensive network,” Director of MTN Business Andreas Neocleous said.
Wargaming.Net was established in 1998 by Victor Kislyi in Belarus as a game development studio focused primarily on military games. Today, it boasts awards and a presence in 17 countries employing more than 3,700 people.
