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

A successful HPC cluster is a powerful asset for an organization. The following essential strategies are guidelines for the effective operation of an HPC cluster resource: 1. Plan To Manage the Cost of Software Complexity 2. Plan for Scalable Growth 3. Plan to Manage Heterogeneous Hardware/Software Solutions 4. Be Ready for the Cloud 5. Have an answer for the Hadoop Question Bright Cluster Manager addresses the above strategies remarkably well and allows HPC and Hadoop clusters to be easily created, monitored, and maintained using a single comprehensive user interface. Administrators can focus on more sophisticated, value-adding tasks rather than developing homegrown solutions that may cause problems as clusters grow and change. The end result is an efficient and successful HPC cluster that maximizes user productivity.

In the pantheon of HPC grand challenges, weather forecasting and long-term climate simulation rank right up there with the most complex and com- putationally demanding problems in astrophysics, aeronautics, fusion power, exotic materials,and earthquake prediction, to name just a few. Modern weather prediction requires cooperation in the collection of observed data and sharing of forecasts output among all nations, a collabora- tion that has been ongoing for decades. This data is used to simulate effects on a range of scales— from events, such as the path of tornados, that change from minute to minute and move over distances measured in meters, to turnover of water layers in the ocean, a process that is measured in decades or even hundreds of years, and spans thousands of miles. The amount of data collected is staggering. Hundreds of thousands of surface stations, including airborne radiosondes, ships and buoys, aircraft, and dozens of weather satellites, are streaming terabytes of i

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.
