PETEX 2010 - London/Olympia - 23-25 November
Bull's Extreme Computing BU will be exhibiting at the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain's biennial conference and exhibition, PETEX 2010, which is taking place in Earls Court 2, Warwick Street, London, from November 23 to 25.
This event attracts over 2400 delegates drawn from oil companies, oilfield service companies, consultancies and technology vendors involved in oil exploration in the North Sea and Atlantic Margin. Although primarily from the UK, there will also be a significant presence from staff based in Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, France, Ireland, Canada, Russia, the Middle East and the United States.
Bull's booth, located at G36, will be showing the bullx B500 blade chassis and a powerful Bull visualization server, configured with NVIDIA Quadro 6000 3D graphics and C2050 GPU cards, and showing demonstrations of ffA's SEA3D, a leading OpenGL 3D seismic interpretation application.
Bull will also be publicising the recently-announced 'extreme factory' portal solution for PaaS (Platform-As-A Service) and SaaS (Software-As-A-Service). This is used in conjunction with Bull's accelerated server infrastructure to give oil and gas customers remote access to geoscience data and applications located in a central HPC server hub, either as an external service, or as part of an internal HPC applications delivery service, which includes interactive OpenGL applications from leading ISVs.
Bull will be joined by technology partners NVIDIA, CAPS and ffA, to show some of the most advanced server technology available to geoscientists to increase their productivity, in finding and developing commercial hydrocarbon accumulations in the subsurface.
Roadshow: Data Center next generation - France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, UK and The Netherlands
With the emergence of highly centralized information technology infrastructures and cloud computing, the challenge of streamlining number of servers, storage, backup policy, virtualization, energy constraints and obviously the reduction of costs, have become CIOs and IT managers main focus.
Until now, virtualization has mainly been limited to infrastructure applications and data that are relatively simple to virtualize. Business critical applications, on which the enterprise production relies, are all but excluded from the virtual world. With new innovative developments in virtualization technologies supporting business critical applications’ specific requirements and intensive use of resources, the conditions have been fulfilled to enable virtualization of the Data Center as a whole.
At the very heart of the challenges of availability, data protection, quality of service and disaster recovery, the virtualisation strategy and implementation becomes a central lever in the success or failure of the enterprise information system. Innovative solutions associating VMware, EMC solutions and novascale bullion™ servers, together with a comprehensive methodology to execute successfully their Data Center metamorphosis projects, enable IT departments to virtualize their business critical applications to gain flexibility, availability, performance and energy efficiency.
