Many companies, especially those in the Oil and Gas Industry, need high-density deployments of high performance compute (HPC) environments to manage and analyze the extreme levels of computing involved with seismic processing. CyrusOne’s Houston West campus has the largest known concentration of HPC and high-density data center space in the colocation market today. The data center buildings at this campus are collectively known as the largest data center campus for seismic exploration computing in the oil and gas industry. By continuing to apply its Massively Modular design and build approach and high-density compute expertise, CyrusOne serves the growing number of oil and gas customers, as well as other customers, who are demanding best-in-class, mission-critical, HPC infrastructure. The company’s proven flexibility and scale of its HPC offering enables customers to deploy the ultra-high density compute infrastructure they need to be competitive in their respective business sectors.
This paper is the first to explore a recent breakthrough with the introduction of the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry’s first Intelligence Community Directive (ICD) 503 (DCID 6/3 PL4) certified compliant and secure scale-out parallel file system solution.
