Mercury’s Open Inventor cluster edition

‘Transparent scalability’ promised for large 3D seismic and voxel modeling applications.

Mercury Computer Systems (formerly TGS) has just released a version of its visualization programming toolkit, Open Inventor, tuned for computer clusters. Open Inventor Cluster Edition brings ‘transparent scalability’ to visualization applications like 3D seismics and large voxel models.


The Cluster Edition is available on 64 bit Linux systems based on either AMD’s Opteron or Intel’s Xeon EMT64. 32 and 64 bit Windows versions will be available later this year. Open Inventor is embedded in systems from Foster Findlay Associates, Landmark, Schlumberger, SMT, Jason, Paradigm and Roxar. Oil company developers include Total and BGP (China).
