Landmark Graphics has opened an application hosting center in Kuala Lumpur to provide infrastructure, applications and services to oil and gas companies in Malaysia. The hosting center is located in Landmark’s new office in the Petronas Twin Towers. The center is built around HP’s AMD Opteron Linux Blade servers, Landmark’s Team Workspace Portal and an EMC network attached storage (NAS) NS702 system. Connectivity is assured by a gigabit network and fiber-optic backbone to companies in the vicinity.
Landmark boss Peter Bernard said, ‘The hosting center removes the burden of managing and maintaining the technical computing infrastructure from E&P. Outsourcing data and applications lets companies focus on their primary goals.’
Peter Ferris, EMC’s oil vertical manager added, ‘Supporting the demanding infrastructure requirements of the upstream is becoming challenging and costly. EMC’s enterprise NAS solutions assure the availability, performance and scalability requirements to meet the service-level requirements demanded by providers like Landmark.’
