ParadigmTM has invested in a high-performance computing cluster of 280 Dell PowerEdgeTM servers, to maintain the operational excellence of its seismic data processing center.
Paradigm is a provider of geoscience software and consulting services that accelerates prospect generation and reservoir exploitation for the oil and gas E&P industry worldwide.
The company will use Dell’s highly scalable, standards-based computing cluster – comprised of Dell PowerEdge 1850 servers with dual-core IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processors – to reduce seismic processing job completion time and increase job capacity, which is critical to rapidly identifying, modeling and analyzing oil and gas reservoirs around the world.
“We chose Dell servers for our high-performance compute cluster because they can enable us to double the CPU horsepower in our compute center and reduce our power consumption, footprint and system interaction, without having to increase data center space,” said Matt Brzostowski, Paradigm’s vice president of Integrated Services.
To facilitate integration and management of the supercomputing system, Paradigm will also use Dell Services to rack, stack and ship the cluster to the company’s Houston compute center.
“Dell is committed to simplifying advanced computing with standards-based systems, software and services that are highly available, scalable, easy to deploy and easy to manage,” said Reza Rooholamini, director of Dell’s Enterprise Solutions Engineering. “As a result, Paradigm can harness the supercomputing power of the Dell PowerEdge cluster quickly and easily so they can focus on maximizing productivity and imaging accuracy.”
