Opus Interactive grows

Opus Interactive announced Feb. 21 that it is expanding its “cloud” footprint in Oregon to meet customer demand for cloud and colocation services.

The managed hosting provider plans to complete its expansion into a data center in Hillsboro by next month.

The data center market is projected to grow 4 percent to $156 billion in 2014; a market surge that has resulted in growth and partnerships of all shapes and sizes to meet demand.

In its Hillsboro expansion, Opus Interactive is partnering with Fortune Data Centers to serve as a preferred provider of retail colocation, cloud services, network and managed services for Fortune’s Oregon data center.

“The market is expanding,” said John Sheputis from Fortune Data Centers, “and we’re excited to partner with an Oregon-based company that has a long history of delivering high performance hosting services.

Even better, the Opus Interactive staff operate from our Oregon data center.”

The 240,000 square foot Oregon data center benefits from state of the art energy efficiency and control — including 100 percent aisle containment and the ability to take advantage of Oregon’s clean and inexpensive power and tax-free financial incentives.

“We’ve had to turn away colocation business from potential customers who were looking for high-density power needs, which were greater than we could accommodate,” said Eric Hulbert, CEO of Opus Interactive, which was founded in 1994.

“We are effectively doubling our capacity on our cloud platform and adding additional service offerings in our storage platform with higher performance options,” added Brady Wilson, CTO of Opus Interactive.
