New Software Accelerates E&P Asset Backup

April 30, 2009 at 4:24 pm Leave a comment

Enigma Data Solutions has developed an extension to its Project Archive and Retrieval System (PARS) suite that automates the backup of data from geotechnical, reservoir characterization and office applications. PARS Backup enables data managers to restore multi-disciplinary E&P projects quickly in the event of data loss, system failure or natural disasters. Enigma’s software can identify and capture the important project data and metadata from mainstream E&P applications from vendors such as Landmark, Schlumberger and Paradigm, as well as numerous tools used for reservoir characterization.

This sophisticated application integration is combined with special features in PARS Backup to automate the backup of complex oil exploration projects, while preserving all of the structured database information, unstructured data files and intra-project references required for a reliable and consistent backup.

With Enigma software, companies can now manage complete E&P asset backup for both local and remote processing centers from a single server. Each application backup job is configured using a step-by-step wizard tailored to the application, such that all of the required data and decision information for each project is preserved. Once each application’s backup is configured, the process is fully automated from this central administration point.

PARS Backup automatically creates a powerful search index from application metadata that is used to locate the correct project from a backup set quickly and accurately. Thus, it is no longer necessary to spend time searching through backup sets and retrieving tapes from local or long term storage. Project data recovery is enhanced with built-in features to perform either a full recovery, or to roll back live projects to a previous restore point in the event of data corruption or poor processing decisions. PARS stores all of the project data in a single bundle, maintaining a project’s integrity so that restores are reliable and execution is straightforward.

PARS Backup supports Solaris, Linux and Windows operating systems. The PARS Backup destination can be either disk or a broad range of tape and virtual tape storage solutions.
