As worldwide demand for energy continues to rise, the oil industry is working to satisfy demand for the hydrocarbon part of that equation. High performance computing is becoming critical to companies that are seeking new sources of hydrocarbons and trying to maximize existing reserves.
The Open Compute Project is a way for organization to increase computing power while lowering associated costs with hyper-scale computing. This article is the 4th in a series from insideHPC that showcases the benefits of open computing to specific industries.
In this podcast, Michael Feldman and Addison Snell from Intersect360 Research discuss the 2014 Oil & Gas Workshop at Rice University. Following that, they take a look WOS 360, the latest in Object Storage technology from DDN.
Woodside Energy in Australia is building a $500k supercomputer to help oil and gas exploration efforts. Powered by Intel Xeon processors with 880 cores, the supercomputer has been named Moordiup, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘fast’.
As advances in hardware/software technologies, sensing technologies and math-physics have progressed the ratio of data to compute power has remained relatively constant as the goal is increasing the resolution of the subsurface. The talk will provide the path taken and where it might go in the future in and how it might connect to opportunities in the XLDB arena.
