Optimizing the Upstreaming Workflow: Flexibly Scale Storage for Seismic Processing Demands

710 views

Published on

Of all the applications in the oil and gas industry's upstream workflow, those involved in seismic processing place the greatest demand on storage. Pre-stack and post-stack migration, velocity modeling, and other processing steps are challenging even the highest performance NAS systems. In this Webinar, we discuss meeting these demands with accelerated performance, reduced cost, and a streamlined workflow.

  4. 4. How We Got Here•  Seismic processing challenges–  Provide 10’s of GB/sec of throughput–  Cost-effectively store 100’s of TBs or even PBs of data–  Specialty, proprietary storage silos complicate workflow4Proprietary & ConfidentialNeed HighPerformanceNeed CheapCapacity
  5. 5. What We Are Doing About It•  Scale performance–  Tiering places active data on fast media (e.g. RAM, Flash)–  Linearly scale performance through clustering•  Reduce cost–  Support existing NAS environments–  Store everything on near-line disks (7.2k SATA/SAS)•  Simplify workflow–  Seamless transitions between upstream workflow stages–  Avoid storage silos and inefficient data copy steps5Proprietary & Confidential
  6. 6. How We Do It – Scale Performance•  Auto-tiering active data to RAM and Flash•  Automatic replication and striping of hot blocks onmultiple FXT nodes•  Deliver 2+ GB/sec per FXT node•  Scale to 50 FXT nodes à 100+ GB/sec6Proprietary & ConfidentialCompute Farm NetApp FAS 3270Avere FXT 4200 Cluster• 16TB of Flash/SSD• 22GB/s ThroughputAuto-tiering
  7. 7. How We Do It – Save Cost•  Support existing NAS environments–  Avoid costly upgrade–  Support heterogeneous NAS vendors•  Store primary data on near-line disks (e.g. 7.2k SATA)–  CAPEX savings (avoid using lots of 15k disks)–  OPEX savings (due to reduced space, power, and cooling)•  Reduce cost by 50% or more–  Proven in customer environments and benchmark testing–  See next slide for example…7Proprietary & Confidential
