HPE Servers Deliver High Performance Remote Visualization

Whether generating seismic simulations, locating new productive oil reservoirs, or constructing complex models of the earth’s subsurface, energy, oil, and gas (EO&G) is a highly data-driven industry. To support these activities and accelerate time-to-value, engineers, geoscientists, and geophysicists rely on tremendously large datasets and a number of high performance computing (HPC) technologies.

This means that the EO&G industry is one of the most demanding computing environments that exists today. In addition to investing in HPC energy solutions, EO&G companies must modernize their IT infrastructures in order to consistently deliver data- and compute-intensive applications and graphics to workers that are situated in a variety of locations, from corporate offices to remote field offices, drilling sites, or off-shore rigs.

Remote visualization is an HPC technique that is used often in the EO&G industry. Remote visualization allows a centralized HPC resource to host high-end 3D-capable compute and visualization processing, while users operating on a variety of remote endpoint devices can access compressed and encrypted data, images, and videos.

Remote visualization solutions offer a variety of benefits, both for the business and for its employees. The use of encryption allows business-critical data to remain safe and secure in the data center, enabling remote visualization to fit squarely into any enterprise’s data security strategy. And users can maintain anywhere, anytime access to the large datasets and compute-intensive graphics that they need to do their jobs without the security and latency concerns that accompany downloading large amounts of information over the internet.

Server platforms from Hewlett Packard Enterprise are purpose-built to support any computing environment where massive data demands extreme performance and scale, particularly high performance remote visualization.

The HPE Apollo 2000 is a high-density server platform that provides rack-scale compute, storage, networking, power, and cooling for HPC and remote visualization workloads. A modular design and innovative power distribution and air-cooling techniques provide up to 4X greater performance per square foot than standard rack servers. Because HPE Apollo systems deliver more compute power in less space, they are an ideal choice for space-constrained data centers or remote sites.

A key component of the HPE High Performance Remote Visualization solution, HPE Apollo 2000 systems offer flexible configuration options and seamless integration, as well as support a variety of HPC features. HPE Apollo systems also support the latest high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnect technologies including Omni-Path and InfiniBand, which optimize a variety of HPC workloads and enable flexible scalability for larger server clusters.

Particularly in the EO&G industry, legacy or home-grown computing technologies are simply unable to deliver the performance, speed, and security needed to further exploration and production, perform 3D reservoir modeling, or design and monitor new wells. Selecting and implementing the right HPC server platform is the first crucial step to executing remote visualization workloads and supporting a progressively mobile workforce.

HPC Serves as a ‘Rosetta Stone’ for the Information Age

July 12, 2018

In an age defined and transformed by its data, several large-scale scientific instruments around the globe might be viewed as a ‘mother lode’ of precious data. With names seemingly created for a ‘techno-speak’ glossary, these interferometers, cyclotrons, sequencers, solenoids, satellite altimeters, and cryo-electron microscopes are churning out data in previously unthinkable and seemingly incomprehensible quantities -- billions, trillions and quadrillions of bits and bytes of electro-magnetic code.
