Improving Performance and Manageability for Seismic Processing and Imaging Applications With Parallel Storage

IDC OPINION: As pressure increases on the upstream seismic processing community to deliver ever-higher levels of productivity and efficiency, a new generation of storage solutions will be required that allow the maximum utilisation of high-performance computing (HPC) Linux cluster resources, together with the minimum of management overhead. Some storage vendors have risen to this challenge with innovative high-performance storage solutions that take many of the high-level management tasks and handle them as automated or background processes.

Panasas, Inc., a Fremont, CA-based manufacturer of storage systems, has developed parallel storage solutions that meet the performance and manageability needs of upstream seismic data processing organisations, as well as other HPC environments. IDC believes that parallel storage offers significant potential benefits to seismic processing organisations looking to drive higher utilisation levels of their HPC clusters and applications while minimising their management overhead.
