Explore issues and answers around NetApp storage solutions.
Accelerate key workflows for seismic processing, reservoir simulation, as well as enterprise applications.
NetApp helps energy companies manage big data to improve decision-making, accelerating data analysis for 3D modeling, exploration, seismic processing and rendering, as well as drilling simulations can pay huge dividends when evaluating and drilling a prospective oil well.
NetApp is a member of the The Open Group and an active participant in the Open Subsurface Data Universe Forum (OSDU).
Oil and gas exploration companies are under the pressures of both time and cost. On one hand, the volume of project data that is generated by an increasingly diverse set of applications continues to grow while IT budgets continue to shrink. On the other hand, the desire to access even older projects nearly instantly is becoming a critical business concern, because reworking older data is more cost-effective than acquiring new data.
Graphically intensive workflows continue to evolve. Feeding data to decentralized visualization workstations is increasingly difficult, due to the rapid growth in dataset size, inability to upgrade bandwidth to the desktop, and the need to integrate diverse, multidisciplinary data types.
The NetApp Unified Storage Architecture delivers high performance and reliability for your seismic interpretation and decision-making applications. It also can deliver low-cost, massively scalable archival and compliance-enabling storage solutions for these same applications. A single set of management tools simplifies your enterprise data management and lowers TCO.
Repsol registered a 6.5x performance increase for their Petrel applications by moving to Azure cloud. They traced 90% of their performance increase to their choice of storage, Azure NetApp Files.
CGG’s proprietary Geovation software is the powerhouse behind the company’s seismic data processing and imaging services. Data collected from hundreds of thousands of sensors is transferred to one of the company’s 30 global subsurface imaging centers, where it is processed using Geovation to create precise, 3D images of the earth’s subsurface.
When formerly government-run Boğaziçi Elektrik Dağıtım A.Ş. (BEDAŞ) became a privately held entity, the company—the leading utility operator in Turkey—strove to continue to provide best-in-class IT services for its 4.7 million subscribers. With scalable NetApp® all-flash storage, BEDAŞ keeps up with its changing data and resource requirements, and accelerates the delivery of new service features to its customers.
