Upstream Oil Sector to Receive Boost in Data Transfer Speeds

By Miguel Leiva-Gomez November 08, 2012

Aspera, Inc., an innovator that has boosted the speed in which data travels across the globe, and OvationData, the global leader in upstream oil or exploration and production (E&P) within data management services, have just inked a global partnership that will allow them to provide solutions that cater fully to industry members that need to transport an immense amount of seismic data from the field to their data centers and then to desktops to archive their records. These massive movements usually require much more than your average fiber line and this partnership will likely give the folks in the E&P industry the gear they need to make it all happen.

Aspera's going to contribute its own "fasp" software, which enables organizations to move their data more efficiently, saving them plenty of money and increasing their production. This new technology dumps the old standard transmission control (TCP/IP) protocol and plays its own game.

According to Aspera, "fasp throughput is independent of network latency and robust to extreme packet loss that can be found on intercontinental WANs and on satellite, Wi-Fi or cellular connections. The result is transfer times that are hundreds of times faster than standard FTP and highly predictable, regardless of network conditions."

The E&P industry is already familiar with, and even loves, Aspera's elegant solution to their data blues. That's why OvumData will be adding fasp to its own portfolio of data management solutions for this industry as part of its partnership with Aspera.

Gregory Servos, president and COO at OvationData, said in a statement, "Gaining access to both legacy and current seismic data inevitably leads to vast amounts of data that must be moved from remote sites and locations into and between geographically dispersed data centers. Aspera's high-speed data transport solutions are a perfect complement to our broad portfolio of specialized data management and delivery services."
