IBM and Tricon Geophysics, a Venezuela-based provider of seismic data processing and interpretation services, have collaborated to build a data center supported by IBM System x iDataPlex.
IBM claims that the new data center will enable Tricon to analyze 25 times more seismic data than is currently possible with existing systems. The new data center gives Tricon the ability to explore larger oil and gas fields, up to 1,000 square miles, while cutting power and cooling costs for the company.
Tricon worked with IBM global technology services and IBM business partner Strix Technologies to implement and support its new infrastructure, which runs the Red Hat Linux v5 operating system.
