With an IaaS infrastructure, you have the ability to configure and operate low-level aspects such as networking or storage.

Direct interfacing with physical hardware

IaaS offers the possibility to directly interface with the physical hardware, which can be beneficial for resource-intensive applications or those requiring maximum performance.

Tailor-made selection of virtual machine images

IaaS providers frequently offer an extensive selection of virtual machine types that you can choose based on your needs. It is also common to create custom images as per the requirements.

Our services

Invest in peace of mind, we take care of your infrastructure

Our expertise lies in assisting businesses with the installation and maintenance of their cloud computing infrastructure. Whether it is managed by us or an external host, we implement solutions that adapt to a wide range of European or International cloud platforms.

Our methods include the use of open source tools from HashiCorp, including Terraform for secure resource orchestration and Ansible (IBM/RedHat) for configuration control, thereby contributing to standardized environments and reducing human errors.

These methodologies, falling under Infrastructure as Code ((IaC)) , are pillars of our approach to ensure solid and reliable management of your cloud infrastructure.

For more advanced cases of cloud infrastructure services and IaC, our team takes a holistic approach to further enhance the management of your systems.

Firstly, we optimize images using Packer and Cloud-Init, thereby reducing the startup time of instances. For dynamic systems, we use Consul for automatic node identification, ensuring flexible and adaptive infrastructure management. We also employ Nomad for lightweight orchestration of processes, making deployment and resource management tasks simpler and more efficient.

In order to further improve the reliability and maintainability of our systems, we are strengthening the rules to compensate for the absence of a framework in Ansible, thereby helping to maintain the code. Our approach favors immutable infrastructures to minimize risks and ensure consistency.

Finally, we make it a point of honor to encrypt internal network communications to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of data in transit within your infrastructure. This set of techniques and tools ensures a robust, secure, and optimized cloud infrastructure management.

Monitoring plays a crucial role in optimizing performance and ensuring constant availability of your cloud infrastructure. OpsVox has developed a selection of open-source tools dedicated to proactive and efficient monitoring.

We offer services aimed at improving the performance of your system and quickly detecting anomalies, while also monitoring resource saturation (disks, CPU, memory, network). We provide precise monitoring of many essential services as well as your business metrics, thus empowering your teams to maintain independence over the systems.

The relationship between monitoring, logs, tracing, and observability is essential for effective system management and prompt problem resolution. Observability is a comprehensive set of various services that can become time-consuming, which is why we prefer the vision of the company Grafana, which proposes centralizing all these services in a single repository

Opting for OpsVox allows you to benefit from a readily available supervision system that offers service continuity, fault tolerance, scalability, downtime reduction, and resilience.. We are equipped to manage the evolution of your infrastructure, minimize downtime, and prepare your system to face any challenges.

In an increasingly complex digital world, application performance is crucial. At OpsVox, we understand the importance of evaluating the impact of your applications on your system and network resources. Employing benchmarking, we assist you in optimizing your infrastructure and enhancing the efficacy of your applications.

An essential tool we use in this process is K6 from Grafana, a high-performing and flexible open-source load testing tool that allows us to simulate traffic to an application or website and analyze performance. Here are some practical use cases inspired by k6:

  • Load testing an e-commerce site: As the Black Friday approaches, an e-commerce client wants to ensure that their site can withstand the increase in traffic. With k6, we simulate high traffic and measure the site's ability to respond correctly to requests. The results help us identify weaknesses and address them before the big day.
  • Measuring the impact of an application update: When a company deploys a new version of an application, it is essential to evaluate its impact on system and network resources. We use k6 to simulate expected traffic and analyze the application's performance. This allows us to anticipate any potential issues and make necessary modifications.
  • Evaluating the performance of a streaming service: A video streaming service wants to understand why some users experience buffering issues. With k6, we simulate different usage scenarios and analyze the service's performance to identify the causes of the problem.

These practical use cases illustrate how benchmarking can help improve the performance of your applications and optimize the use of your system and network resources. At OpsVox, we are committed to helping you achieve your performance goals.

Security is an essential aspect of any cloud infrastructure. At OpsVox, we make it a point of honor to design secure architectures, manage identity and access management (IAM), control images and services through continuous integration, and perform regular infrastructure audits. Here are some examples illustrating our approach:

  • Identity and Access Management: For a client requiring multi-user access to their cloud resources, we have implemented a centralized and deployable strategy. This has allowed for granular access control and seamless tracking of access changes by integrating with the client's internal tools, thereby reducing the risk of unauthorized data access.
  • Code Image and Service CI: To ensure that all code updates are secure before deployment, we use a CI pipeline that performs automated security tests. This helps identify and address potential vulnerabilities before they reach the production environment.
  • Infrastructure Audits: For an e-commerce company, we have implemented an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). This tool monitors network traffic to detect suspicious activities that may indicate an intrusion attempt. This device is essential for ensuring a quick response to any potential security incidents.
IaaS vs PaaS

Maximizing IaaS for Your Applications

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides unmatched flexibility and is a preferred playground for us, leveraging our in-depth expertise in systems, networks, and their automation. We have developed proven solutions that can be deployed on demand, based on carefully selected open-source technologies. This allows us to provide the missing layers on top of the low-level IaaS cloud offerings, if needed.

We are able to deploy the necessary services for the operation of your applications on IaaS clouds, even those that have not yet reached the level of sophistication of major players such as GCP, AWS or Azure. This allows you to access sovereign clouds or take advantage of the financial benefits offered by the many hosting providers on the market.

After a thorough analysis of your specific needs, we help you choose the cloud provider that will best cater to your requirements.

Furthermore, our architectures are designed to be highly compatible with various platforms. This facilitates migrations, thereby minimizing the efforts and costs associated.
