The tools Opalis makes available for data center automation are indeed worthy of note however I’ve been partial to Stratavia’s tools. Having used both companies services before I thought that Stratavia’s tools where easier to implement than where the tools from Opalis. They made for a much easier transition from a static to an automated network. Using both sets of tools at separate companies has allowed me to form this opinion.
