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.

DownUnder GeoSolutions is an innovative geosciences company with a diverse range of capabilities. Their products and services are at the cutting edge of exploration and production services to the global oil and gas industry.

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.

Seismic processing data, including Kirchhoff migrations, reverse time migrations, data interpolation, 3D surface-related multiple elimination

Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)

System Flexibility - Ongoing application development and improvements are relatively quick and inexpensive to implement due to the system's flexibility.

Installation Efficiency - Deployment was efficient due to transparency.

Total Cost of Ownership - Total cost of ownership is lowered due to reduction in IT maintenance.


The solution achieved up to 8 times node-to-node performance improvement.

The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
