We are thrilled to announce that Jelastic launched the first cloud hosting partner on the West Coast, Opus Interactive.
Opus Interactive is an Oregon-based cloud hosting and colocation company that specializes in delivery of customized IT solutions. The company will provide Jelastic cloud hosting services from its data center in Hillsboro. The Tier III facility is owned by Infomart and was recently selected as the flagship datacenter for LinkedIn based on sustainability, security, and energy savings advantages.
“We’re very selective about our hosting partners. Reliability, scalability, and security are critical to the needs of our users who range in size from independent developers to large enterprise applications.” says Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder at Jelastic, “We’re excited for the partnership with Opus Interactive. They’ve been in the industry since 1996, and have a proven track record for customer service that they deliver from world class facilities.”
Opus Interactive’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), powered by Jelastic, lets developers and companies benefit from the wide set of platform features, such as:
- Vertical and horizontal auto-scaling
- Intuitive application topology wizard
- Zero downtime deployment with automated traffic distribution
- One-click installation for popular applications
- Easy creation of dev, test, production environments
- Integrated CI and CD tools for automation
Opus Interactive will be Jelastic’s first datacenter partner in the Pacific Northwest, an area labeled “The Silicon Forest” whose datacenter draw includes the likes of Facebook, Google, and Microsoft. Low cost power, connectivity, and direct access to undersea cable links to the Asia Pacific market are huge attractors.
Connectivity between people, places, and things is quickly being adopted. Gartner predicts that by 2020, 21 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will be connected. In tandem, the demand for hosted apps that enable that connectivity and the development platforms they stem from is also rising. Developers want a reliable platform that gives them flexibility and visibility that they can manage from inception to end-user adoption. And they want it to be simple.
“Understanding the start to finish needs of agencies and developers was baked into our service offering from the beginning. We launched our company out of an IT department in a creative agency 20 years ago,” said Eric Hulbert, CEO of Opus Interactive, “Obviously a lot’s changed in the way services are delivered, but what has stayed the same is – whether it’s Java, Ruby, Python, or something else, it still needs a reliable platform that will grow to support the uptake. The simpler the better: Jelastic is the all-in-one streamlined service the developer community has been waiting for.”
Opus Interactive`s platform, powered by Jelastic, provides highly available hosting on top of up-to-date blade servers from HPE. All customers are welcome to try easy installation, deployment and management of applications for a free 14 day trial.
