One of the unique capabilities of IVAAP is that it works with the cloud infrastructure of multiple vendors. Whether your SEGY file is posted on Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage, IVAAP will be capable of visualizing it.
The oil and gas industry is historically one of the first industries generating actionable data in the modern sense. For example, the first seismic imaging was done in 1932 by John Karcher. Since that first primitive image, seismic data has been digitized and has grown exponentially in size. It is usually represented in monolith data sets which may span in size from a couple of gigabytes to petabytes if pre-stack. The long history, large amount of data, and the nature of the data pose unique challenges that often make it difficult to take advantage of advancing cloud technology. Here is a high-level overview of the challenges of working with oil and gas data and some possible solutions to help companies take advantage of the latest cloud technologies.
Recently, INT announced our partnership with Bluware and our integration of Bluware’s OpenVDS format into IVAAP, our enterprise data visualization platform. We are very excited about this partnership, as well as our collaboration with OSDU. This new format was designed to empower users to browse seismic data in the cloud with high performance and lower cost.
As a non-developer living in a developer world, I wanted to understand more about why we develop our software to work with Kubernetes. So I sat down with INT’s Senior Product Manager Steven Reynolds and Senior Architect James Velasco to learn more about Kubernetes and the advantages of working with it.
With the explosion of storage capacity, cloud computing, and bandwidth availability, a trend has emerged in the oil and gas industry over the last few years. Data that was previously aggregated and discarded is now maintained and stored, creating an opportunity for the industry. Coupled with new advancements in machine learning and Al, this data availability is poised to drive more data driven decision making in well planning, drilling & completions, and well operations.
Storing and accessing large, sometimes sensitive geoscience data is one challenge many top E&P companies face. Local data storage is one option. But what about data that is not stored locally? How do you access it quickly, and can you still use INTViewer?
In our blog post on Microsoft Azure, we describe various ways customers can move their data to the cloud. In the configuration where INTViewer is hosted on a remote server and needs to be accessed from a local workstation, a Teradici client is one solution. These configurations are increasingly popular with our customers. For performance […]
The cloud is not just a set of computing resources hosting web based-applications. Microsoft Azure can also be used to host what we know today as desktop PCs. Constant availability and unlimited storage are just two of the numerous advantages of hosting your PC on the cloud.
