“Some of the biggest casinos on the Strip already trust Cobalt to host their non-gaming applications,” said Jeff Brown, CEO, Cobalt Data Centers. “With our NGCB registration, Cobalt becomes the one-stop, full-service hosting partner for licensees and unlocks all sorts of strategic options for an industry so vital to our State. This is an exciting and progressive leap forward for gaming in Nevada.”

Cobalt Data Centers is based in Las Vegas. The colocation provider will again sponsor the Gaming & 
Leisure Roundtable to be held September 28-29, 2014 at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas. Presented by Gaming & Leisure magazine, the Roundtable is the premier private forum for CXO executives working in the hospitality and gaming industries.
