ION Computes 2.5X More Work with Zero Changes to Processing Infrastructure

High performance achieved by ION Geophysical’s GX Technology Imaging Solutions group for growing, high-demand oil and gas exploration computing.

describe the imageWith Surface Related Multiple Elimination (SRME) processing putting a high demand on CPUs of its existing NAS cluster, using it for simultaneous applications became impossible. After investigating many options to scale its NAS architecture that were stymied by either cost or technical limitations, GXT opted to scale its NAS architecture with Avere’s FXT Series. The outcome?

  • 250,000 random IOPS
  • 50x throughput and offload of pre-existing NFS infrastructure
  • 50x reduction in latency
  • Other applications running faster and unimpeded
