Entrepreneur Country has teamed up with the GamingMalta Foundation on a series of ‘Home of Gaming Excellence’ interviews with key players within the igaming eco system.
GamingMalta is a proud sponsor of the ‘Follow the Entrepreneur Investor Summit Malta’ on the 10th and 11th July at Westin Dragonara Resort.
“Everyone has a story to tell and Anton’s is particularly interesting. He left IBM in 2008 and moved to Malta with his young family to take over the data centre business CSL Data Centre Services, which was at the time a traditional IBM AS400 reseller on its last legs with 4 remaining engineers and a handful of customers!
His job was to save the business or close it down. Foresight plays a role in the direction one takes however no one has a crystal ball. In 2010 he developed and launched a Cloud Services Model similar to AWS which was a first in Malta for customers, the regulators and my competition. Today CSL owns and operates 3 Data Centres in Malta with a total capacity of 2000 square meters of rack space, which are ISO27001 certified & employ 32 people.
The company gained a lot of experience the last 7 years building Private Cloud & Shared Cloud Platforms serving 100+ customers in the iGaming & Financial Services sector. This experience helped Anton understand the pain as well as the excitement startups go through and that is something he believes everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!“
