Spectrum Boosts Data Processing Capacity in Houston by 50%

October 1, 2009 at 6:00 am 1 comment

Spectrum has completed a series of computer facility upgrades at its regional data processing and imaging center in Houston, Texas that will increase capacity by 50%. The technology upgrades applied over the past six months will prepare Spectrum’s largest computing facility for a scheduled increase in multi-client processing projects from the fourth quarter of 2009 onwards, and help fulfill increased international demand for pre-stack depth and time imaging services on behalf of oil company clients.

            Technology upgrades included increasing the CPU units in the Houston processing clusters by 50% and adding two new master servers. Other new equipment included a new 32-core Sun M5000 server with an additional 120 TB of high-specification Onstor primary disc storage. The processing center infrastructure has also been enhanced with additional electrical and air conditioning support to maintain optimum operating conditions.
