DALLAS, Texas, Feb. 28 — Global data center services provider CyrusOne is slated to be an exhibitor at the Oil and Gas High-Performance Computing (HPC) workshop Feb. 28, from 7:15 a.m. to 7 p.m. The workshop takes place in Duncan Hall at Rice University in Houston, Texas. CyrusOne has teamed up with R Systems to share details of their HPC cloud-based solution with workshop attendees.
The annual Oil and Gas HPC workshop is the premier meeting place for networking and discussion focused on computing and information technology challenges and needs in the oil and gas industry. Attendees are expected to include leaders from the oil and gas industry and the HPC and information technology (IT) industry, as well as academics and representatives from national laboratories.
“High-density computing is a critical component of delivering financial performance in the oil and gas industry,” said Fred Holloway, vice president, channel sales, CyrusOne. “Companies use HPC to more rapidly analyze large amounts of geological data to enable wiser operational decisions and faster go-to-market strategies. We are at the workshop to engage in an open dialogue with attendees about the constantly changing technology landscape and the important part colocation facilities play in traditional and cloud-based HPC solutions.”
CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise data center colocation, engineering facilities with the highest power redundancy (2N architecture), and power-density infrastructure required to deliver excellent availability.
CyrusOne is housing and enabling the first-ever enterprise HPC cloud solution from Dell and R Systems. Together they have established a working “project partner” alliance, offering customized HPC solutions for clients. Customers opting for the cloud solution leverage dedicated, secure, and powerful computing resources for periods between one day and one year. The enterprise HPC cloud solution empowers companies to align performance compute directly to project periods and technology refresh cycles, to optimize resources, and take advantage of the fastest compute technology available.
“HPC cloud solutions are an alternative to legacy IT infrastructures because they are faster to deploy, easily scale to uses and business cycles, and require less capital and operating investment,” said Holloway. “The enterprise HPC cloud solution frees companies from having to manage HPC environments and resources so that they can focus on running their businesses, not data centers.”
CyrusOne has designed 24 carrier-neutral data center facilities across the United States, Europe, and Asia that give customers the flexibility and scale to perfectly match their specific growth needs. In 2012, the company began building in Texas the first statewide Internet Exchange in the country. Connecting all major sites in Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, the offering is scheduled to formally launch first quarter 2013.
CyrusOne is renowned for its exceptional and personalized customer service that is designed to build enduring customer relationships and high customer satisfaction levels. Customers include nine of the Fortune 20 companies and more than 100 of the Fortune 1000.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
