Seismic Internet Exchange (IX) offers flexibility and reliability customized for Oil and Gas requirements
Dallas, TX (May 7, 2013) –Global data center services provider CyrusOne recently launched in Texas the first Internet Exchange (IX) platform supporting the unique seismic processing and data management requirements of oil and gas companies. The Seismic IX provides customers in the oil and gas industry with flexibility, reliability and a range of choices for massive, real-time data transfer and multi-point accessibility of exploration and operational software.
The increasing volume of data in the oil and gas industry has led decision-makers to partner with information technology providers to help optimize the data capture, analysis and decision-making process.
“Oil and gas companies generate tremendous amounts of data associated with seismic exploration efforts that are being stored, processed, and analyzed in CyrusOne’s data centers,” explained Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager for Interconnection at CyrusOne. “The Seismic IX platform is a highly cost-effective means for oil and gas customers to move and manipulate immense data sets between CyrusOne data centers, their own enterprise data centers, and third-party facilities within a metro area or city-to-city.”
The CyrusOne Seismic IX offers low-cost data transfer between CyrusOne data center facilities across the Houston area and enables customers to access connections with any provider or partner at any connected facility. Therefore, customers have additional transport options rather than having to choose solely between telecom carriers housed within a specific facility. As a result, customers can gain significant advantages in performance, efficiency, and workflow continuity.
Best-in-Class Facilities and Interconnectivity
During the last decade, CyrusOne has developed unique data center engineering capabilities to handle the highest-density computing environments in the oil and gas industry. These high-performance data centers give customers the flexibility to leverage the most advanced server technology, accommodating 250 watts per square foot and higher, which in turn has enabled CyrusOne to become the leading technology provider for seismic exploration research and development.
Earlier this year, the CyrusOne Texas Internet Exchange (IX) was launched as the first statewide IX platform in the United States, connecting all major sites in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Many of CyrusOne’s oil and gas customers have been attracted to the CyrusOne Texas IX, as it provides for a secure and cost-effective way for companies to share the tremendous amount of data associated with the seismic exploration. The Seismic IX is a subset of that statewide network.
