The Challenge

DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) wanted to increase computing performance by 5 to 10 times to improve seismic processing. The solution must build on current architecture software investments without sacrificing existing software and scale computing without scaling IT infrastructure costs.

The Solution

DUG deployed SGI Rackable cluster powered by Intel coprocessors and Intel Xeon processor. DUG was able to scale its software to the latest highly parallel architecture for faster seismic processing and imaging while enhancing algorithmic gains in existing software.
