Benefits and Technical Details

Performance Matters

Comparing OpusCloud, a robust VMware and HPE solution that delivers optimized performance, with AWS and Azure.

Using fewer resources on better-performing services can lower costs.

Finding the right mix is key.

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 HPE® 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.

HPE 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 HPE storage arrays (HPE 3PAR, HPE Nimble and HPE StoreVirtual VSA), 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.

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

Network
Our multi-homed, 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/100Gb 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.

Colocation Integration
We are also aware there are times when a colocation of physical owned equipment is necessary. We also offer colocation services from as small as 1U in shared colocation up to full dedicated cages.  We offer to then integrate the OpusCloud to your colocation services to integrate the two in a Hybrid fashion on secure private managed cross connects.

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 AWS and Microsoft Azure 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.  We provide Cisco ASA virtual licensing, Veeam licensing, RedHat licensing, PulseSecure Loadbalancer licensing and KEMP Loadbalancer licensing as a service to compliment all our OpusCloud offerings.
