DDN|Oil & Gas
Performance, scalability, experience and innovation make DDN the preferred platform for upstream Oil and Gas.
While it is only a tiny fraction of the cost of Exploration and Production, the right storage infrastructure can generate big returns in productivity and creating competitive advantage. The game-changing performance and scalability of DDN solutions deliver a unified platform for ingest, processing and visualization that support the most demanding environments today and tomorrow. This is why over half the top producers worldwide are leveraging DDN storage solutions in their upstream oil and gas workflows.
DDN wins by being able to perform and scale better than filer appliances and by delivering better performance and ease of use than traditional storage providers.
|2 to 5x the bandwidth of other storage||A Big advantage for large file access workflows like 3D, 4D (WAZ) data sets|
|1.7 million cached or 1.4 million disk IOPS||For small file access like Landmark ProMAX™ "Map Files"|
|Focus 1000s of cores on 1 data set||High performance in mixed IO workflows like REACT™|
|4 GB/s single thread write coalescing||Massive single client throughput for workflows like Paradigm® GeoDepth|
|Accessible, cost-effective data archive||Mixed tiers of storage in single array (SSD – SAS – SATA) for complete control over storage price / performance|
Ease of Maintenance and Management
With a single point of management for hundreds of Petabytes of storage and data, the ability to scale up, out or both to meet changing requirements, and an open architecture that supports multiple parallel and shared file systems, DDN supports the business requirements as well as the application requirements.
|Single Point of Management||Reduces complexity & administration costs. Predicts expansion points|
|Scale-up, scale-out or both||Control price / performance – augment performance, capacity or both. Very cost effective for archive capacity|
|Open File Systems||Support for most leading parallel and shared file systems to accommodate choice and change|
|Global Support, Maintenance, Expertise||Help and local expertise for all your locations|
|Fully Integrated Appliances||Rapid deployment and simple management in remote sites|
Driven by business opportunities, this oil and gas company needed to scale production operations and increase their seismic computation by 10X. This required an advanced technology that would be capable of providing a significant increase in performance and scale requirements for their backend storage.
DDN deployed EXAScaler, serving as their infrastructure which will enable substantial growth of their production operations, making them ready for a 10-100x increase in seismic computations in the future.
