Appro and CyrusOne Compute On Demand Solution Scores Major Win with Top Oil and Gas Company for over 2000 Nodes of High Performance Computing
Milpitas, CA - 10/02/2006 – Appro (http://www.appro.com), a leading provider of high-performance enterprise computing systems and CyrusOne, (http://www.cyrusone.com) a leader in high-availability data center services announced a major win with top oil and gas company for over 2000 nodes of high performance computing. The companies will showcase this cluster technology solution at the SEG Annual Conference in New Orleans, LA, October 2-4 2006, booth 1564.
This partnership offers Appro’s advanced blade technology with CyrusOne’s flexible computing service for the oil and gas industry to perform reservoir modeling, seismic processing and run simulations. Oil and gas customers experience downtime in seismic processing due to a backlog of uninterpreted data, creating a lag in productivity. Using on-demand computing services, customers can immediately begin interpreting seismic data without investing capital into hardware or data center floor space.
Appro and Cyrusone worked with a top oil and gas company to create an external infrastructure so they can tap into a scalable, secure and highly resilient on-demand operating environment. Using Appro’s blade technology and CyrusOne’s computing service, this major oil and gas company contracted to use 2000 cluster nodes over the next three months to perform reservoir modeling, seismic processing and run simulations.
“The partnership between CyrusOne and Appro strengthens our commitment to providing customers with scalable, cost-effective solutions,” said Dave Ferdman, President and CEO, CyrusOne. “Together, we have revolutionized the processing and interpretation of seismic data with the most advanced blade servers and a new flexible computing service.”
“Appro is dedicated to providing our customers with scalable, high-performance solutions that translate into accelerated results and increased efficiency in the oil and gas industry,” said Daniel Kim, CEO, Appro. “By combining CyrusOne’s expertise in flexible computing with Appro’s strength in servers and storage cluster solutions, Appro is poised to deliver a truly cost-effective, flexible solution to our customers.”
