Finding oil and gas has always been a tricky proposition, given that reserves are primarily hidden underground, and often as not, under the ocean as well. The costs involved in acquiring rights to a site, drilling the wells, and operating them are considerable and has driven the industry to adopt advanced technologies for locating the most promising sites. As a consequence, oil and gas exploration today is essentially an exercise in scientific visualization and modeling, employing some of most advanced computational technologies available. High performance computing (HPC) systems are being used to fill these needs, primarily with x86-based cluster computers and Lustre storage systems. The technology is well developed, but the scale of the problem demands medium to large-sized systems, requiring a significant capital outlay and operating expense. The most powerful systems deployed by oil and gas companies are represented by petaflop-scale computers with multiple petabytes of attached

6 criteria for evaluating a high-performance cloud services providers Engineering, scientific, analytics, big data and research workloads place extraordinary demands on technical and high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure. Supporting these workloads can be especially challenging for organizations that have unpredictable spikes in resource demand, or need access to additional compute or storage resources for a project or to support a growing business. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) enables organizations to deliver HPC services in the most efficient way possible, optimizing resource utilization to accelerate time to results and reduce costs. SDI is the foundation for a fully integrated environment, optimizing compute, storage and networking infrastructure to quickly adapt to changing business requirements, and dynamically managing workloads and data, transforming a s

In all things, but especially in high-performance computing (HPC), the details matter. In HPC, the most important detail is drive efficiency, especially when analyzing storage performance. This fundamental metric is easy to calculate and can have a huge impact on HPC storage performance. In this guide, we’ll look at why conventional HPC storage architectures do so poorly at drive-level throughput and what that means to an organization’s ability to realize the full potential of its HPC investments. We’ll also explain why ClusterStor™ from Seagate® excels in this arena.

Although high-performance computing (HPC) often stands apart from a typical IT infrastructure—it uses highly specialized scale-out compute, networking and storage resources—it shares with mainstream IT the ability to push data center capacity to the breaking point. Much of this is due to data center inefficiencies caused by HPC storage growth. The Seagate® ClusterStor™ approach to scale-out HPC storage can significantly improve data center efficiency. No other vendor solution offers the same advantages.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have. Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
