Video: HPC Reservoir Simulations on AWS with NICE

In this video episode of This Is My Architecture, Scott Harrison from Rock Flow Dynamics and Bruno Franzini from NICE Software explain how they scale HPC workloads in the cloud.

“You’ll learn how they leverage Amazon EC2 Spot instances and Amazon S3 to create cost-effective, scalable clusters that power tNavigator, Rock Flow Dynamics’ solution for running dynamic reservoir simulations. You’ll also see how they use NICE Software’s DCV to stream the OpenGL-based user interface to interact with 3D models.”

Rock Flow Dynamics develops software for the petroleum industry. It offers a wide range of advanced innovative tools for reservoir engineering implemented in tNavigator – the dynamic reservoir simulator developed by the company. RFD is expanding quickly to keep up with a fast growing Oil & Gas service industry.
