Eurotech, IBM, Tarmin consolidate Premier Oil’s disparate data

First sale of IBM/Tarmin ‘GridBank’ multi terabyte, multi site, defined data storage solution.

A group led by Boston, MA-headquartered Tarmin is providing Premier Oil with a ‘data defined storage’ (DDS) solution for its growing seismic data set. Tarmin, along with IBM and Eurotech Computer Services are to supply the DDS leveraging Tarmin’s Gridbank offering.

The DDS is a component of an ongoing ‘big data’ project that sees Premier consolidating disparate repositories and securely storing business critical information. The combined DDS solution is the first customer win in a multi-year agreement between IBM and Tarmin to market a joint solution based on Tarmin GridBank and IBM Systems.

Premier Oil group CIO David Edwards said, ‘The new approach to unstructured data management that Gridbank offers will optimally position us to respond to new opportunities in oil and gas exploration, development and production. The integrated solution delivers multiple data management objectives in a single, cohesive offering.’

The multi terabyte, multi-site solution provides media independent data storage, dedupe, encryption and failsafe replication. The DDS also provides unified search across 500+ file types, including oil and gas specific formats. More from Tarmin.
