Landmark’s Digital and Consulting Solutions (DCS) division has announced new hardware and software bundles for high end visualization and data storage. A deal with Verari Systems and Nvidia will offer Landmark’s flagship GeoProbe interpretation package running on a Verari ‘E&P 7500’ server, with up to eight AMD Opteron processors, 128 gigabytes of memory and Nvidia Quadro graphics. An optional Quadro Plex 1000 visual computer is also available. The Linux-based E&P 7500 has a sub $100,000 price tag.
Landmark DCS also unveiled a visual cataloging and tapeless archiving solution integrating Landmark’s Corporate Data Archiver (CDA) with EMC Centera’s content-addressed storage system. Mandmark VP Doug Meikle explained ‘Because data is archived to disk rather than tapes, retrievals that previously took days now take seconds—without assistance from the IT department.’ CDA catalogs and summarizes project data, creating ‘thumbnails’ that allow interpretations to be reviewed without full retrieval.
