CGG has extended its contract with LSI Logic Storage Systems—originally revealed in 2001 (Oil ITJ Vol. 6 N° 12). CGG awarded a three year extension on to LSI for its data storage sub-system. This currently offers one Petabyte of storage and a 2 Gb/s host and drive interface. Fully configured, the technology chosen by CGG can deliver 772 MB/s and CGG plans to expand the system to 1.7 Petabytes storage later this year.
CGG VP data processing Guillaume Cambois said, “Storing and accessing data as quickly and reliably as possible is critical to our day-to-day business. After working with LSI Logic Storage Systems for three years, we knew we could trust the company and were not surprised when our tests showed their latest storage platform came out on top.”
LSI president Tom Georgens added, “We are delighted CGG has recognized what our technology can offer in terms of speed and reliability, and also to have the opportunity to continue, and build on our relationship with the CGG team. CGG is a key customer for LSI Logic Storage Systems and is always challenging the boundaries of what storage technologies can do.”
