Witness a World First in Seismic Data Management.

Tape Ark will be shooting live seismic data directly to the cloud and demonstrating instantaneous data capture and processing capability.

Are you heading to Houston next week for PPDM's Professional Petroleum Data Expo?

Tape Ark will be there and Tape Ark Founder and CEO Guy Holmes will present on “The Adoption of the Cloud in the Oil Industry”. In an exclusive world first for the oil and gas industry, and in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Guy will showcase – in real time – live seismic data acquisition taking place in Oklahoma, with data flowing directly into the AWS cloud and Availability Zone located in Virginia.  Automated data management, metadata capture, GIS registration, and post processing interpretation will all be performed in Houston during his 30 minute presentation. The data will be shot and ingested straight into the AWS cloud without the need for any other storage mechanism such as tape or hard disk. 
With the newly acquired data immediately available in the cloud (and an automatic backup instantly created in Amazon Glacier), Tape Ark will then utilise data management software provider Petrosys' dbMap software and processing and interpretation software company DownUnder Geo's Insight software, demonstrating how the newly acquired seismic data can be QA/QC'ed in real time and then passed through a series of processes that takes minutes, where they would normally take months. Tape Ark is cutting the data management workflow down to be in sync with the acquisition of new data allowing geophysicists to adjust seismic acquisition systems and perform processing and interpretation in real time. The new process cuts out the need to make copies of the data on tape in the field, removes the months of delay that usually occurs while waiting for the data to be shipped from the field to processing houses, instantly creates a backed up version of the data for long term data retention in a single, simple and elegant workflow. Once the data is in the Tape Ark Open Petroleum Data Lake (OPDL) joint venture copies and data sharing are as easy and quick as clicking on a button. The new process saves enormous amounts of time and significant costs and brings the data management function right to the data.
We are sure you will not want to miss witnessing this live world first seismic event on Tuesday 17th April at 3pm.

The Live Seismic Event will be recorded and a video made available post event for web and media purposes. If you are not attending PPDM but would like to be updated and provided with further information and a link to the video, then please register your interest here.

More about Tape Ark

It is often difficult to find the right words to explain what Tape Ark is all about.

To simplify this, we have created a short, 90 second corporate Tape Ark video that explains exactly what we do and why tape to cloud data migration is such a cost effective, beneficial and simply put - no-brainer business decision. It demonstrates how you can take an aging, and decaying cost centre and turn it into valuable business asset.  To watch the video, please click here.
