Hillsboro, OR – April, 12 2017 – Opus Interactive announced today it is now offering Lit Network Service for its Hillsboro and Portland, Oregon-based data centers. This was made possible when the company agreed to long-term dark fiber leases with CoastCom, Zayo and Tata Communications. Opus Interactive’s flagship facility is located in Infomart Data Centers in Hillsboro and its Portland data center is located in Tata Communications’ BB1 facility.
This new, fully redundant and multi-provider ring connects the Infomart Data Centers campus (21515 NW Evergreen Parkway, Hillsboro, OR 97124) to EdgeConneX® (23245 NW Evergreen Pkwy, Hillsboro, OR 97124); The Pittock Block (921 SW Washington St., Portland, OR 97209); and Tata BB1 (1225 W. Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209). Opus has lit this ring with capacity to provide network services from any of these facilities from 10 megabits to 200 gigabits per channel for its customers and partners. The new set of lit network service offerings for Opus provides its customers the flexibility of gaining access to any carrier in the Oregon market from Infomart, EdgeConneX and Tata BB1. New offerings include 1Mbps, 100Mbps, 1Gbps, and 10Gbps up to 200Gbps transport options.
As the retail cloud and colocation provider for Infomart Data Centers Hillsboro location, Opus Interactive offers the facility’s wholesale tenants as well as Opus and EdgeConneX customers backhaul to all the available providers located within the Pittock Block. It also provides low latency, direct access to hyperscale public cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform.
“Our clients are very excited about the near 4ms low latency connectivity options to Amazon U.S. West (Oregon) via direct connect nodes at both EdgeConneX in Hillsboro, OR and Pittock Block in Portland, OR”, said Eric Hulbert, CEO of Opus Interactive. “Being able to provide redundant connections to Amazon U.S. West and other public hyperscale cloud providers for our clients with multi-path redundancy and core protection has been very well received. Many existing and new customers have already signed up.”
“Our vision is to create an open and interconnected environment at Infomart Portland,” added John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers. “We are enabling our customers to further extend their interconnection options. Our relationship with Opus Interactive plays an important role in helping us realize that vision.”
Opus can also provide customers with access to partners like Megaport and PacketFabric for access to Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, and more. These strategic additions to Opus’ portfolio play well into the Company’s multi-cloud, hybrid IT offerings, allowing customers to run their applications and infrastructure on any cloud. Opus can also manage and monitor their customer environments across any cloud through a single pane of glass.
