What is Opta?

Opta is a new kind of Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) framework that lets engineers work with high-level constructs instead of getting lost in low-level cloud configuration. Opta has a vast library of modules (like EKS, RDS, DynamoDB, GKE, Cloud SQL, and even third-party services like Datadog) that engineers can compose together to build their ideal infrastructure stack. It's built on top of Terraform, and designed so engineers arent locked in anyone can write custom Terraform or even take the Opta-generated Terraform and work independently.

Opta gives any engineering team, whether its a team of 2 or 200, the same infrastructure advantages that companies like Google or Facebook have, without having to invest in infrastructure or DevOps engineers.

Why use Opta?

Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) solutions are now widely accepted as the standard for provisioning and managing cloud infrastructure, and Terraform is widely considered to be the best IaC platform on the market and it is but Terraform is also quite complex and requires deep Cloud/infrastructure expertise. We developed Opta to help eliminate this complexity. Opta is a simpler IaC framework with best practices built-in. It lets users set up automated, scalable and secure infrastructure on any cloud, without having to be an infrastructure expert, or getting lost in the minutiae of cloud configuration.

We are confident it can drastically reduce the complexity and headaches that come with DevOps and infrastructure at most fast moving organizations. Opta is currently being used by dozens of companies of all sizes.

Cloud services

Opta supports the 3 major clouds - AWS, GCP and Azure. It has modules for the most commonly used services in these clouds like:

  • Microservices (powered by Kubernetes)
  • Databases - Postgres, MySQL, Redis
  • Serverless workloads
  • Networking - VPCs, Subnets, Load balancers
  • CDN (Content Delivery Network)
  • Object storage (S3, GCS)

Additionally, Opta has cloud and security best practices built in, including:

Coexistence with existing infrastructure

Opta aims to be compatible with your existing infrastructure setup. You can:

  • Import existing Terraform infrastructure into Opta
  • Write custom Terraform modules (for services that Opta doesn't support yet)
  • Run Opta in existing VPCs (WIP)
  • Export the generated Terraform
