Technical Details

OpusCloud™ Technical Details

VMware Hosting from Opus Interactive is provided as single virtual machines (VMs), multiple VMs, or entire virtual datacenters, giving you the flexibility to build out exactly the environment you need. You won’t find locked-in processor/memory/storage configurations. You are free to allocate exactly the resources you need for each server, independently of one another.

Opus Interactive fully discloses the underlying hardware that makes up the OpusCloud:

Compute

The OpusCloud Hosting platform is built on the latest HP® blade servers, running high-performance Intel ®processors. Each blade is configured with multiple 10Gbe Network interfaces in an N+1 system that operates storage and connectivity.

HP Blade systems are recognized as the worldwide leader in enterprise-class, high-density computing.

SAN Storage

The heart of any cloud platform is the SAN, and this is where Opus Interactive excels. We operate many clusters of very high- performance HP storage arrays, each configured with multiple redundant controllers and 15k SAS drives in a RAID 10 and Network RAID 10 configuration. We utilize adaptive optimization with SSDs for performance gains in our clusters to provide higher IOP performance for customers utilizing databases and VDI.

HP is consistently rated as the leading storage provider in the enterprise market. Opus Interactive is an HP® CloudAgile Partner.

Network

Our multi-homed, Cisco- and Arista-built network has been designed from the ground up to be 100% resilient and fully scalable. Our core network is deployed in an N+N 10Gb/40Gb configuration, which means failures of individual network components – routers, switches, or interconnects – will have zero impact on the availability or performance of the network and your associated services.

High Availability Features

Opus Interactive utilizes all enterprise VMware features, including VMotion and DRS to deliver 100% availability across the entire virtualized IT environment. Our industry-leading service level agreement offers your money back if we fail to deliver 100% uptime.

Physical Server Integration

At Opus Interactive, we live and breathe cloud, but we are equally aware there are times when a physical server or device is required. If you need your existing hardware to live out its depreciation cycle, we can help by offering seamless integration with our cloud platform to achieve the best of both worlds.

Monitoring?

Opus Interactive offers a range of monitoring software solutions that keep you in informed on how your network is operating. We even offer monitoring for Amazon® cloud services for your deployments on their infrastructure, providing you availability, performance, and billing details over time.

Licensing

Opus Interactive offers the full range of Microsoft Server software on a pay-as-you-go basis. We also offer the full range of VMware licensing for hardware that we manage. Find out more about our licensing offerings.
