4 Ways High-Speed Data Transfer Can Transform Oil and Gas




Technology has transformed the oil and gas industry, improving the capability to find, extract, and process raw materials more quickly and efficiently then ever before. Despite all the technology innovation, the methods used to move these massive data sets has for the most part, remained the same.

Data is frequently stored on disk and physically shipped, introducing costly delays and additional risk of data loss. Legacy transfer tools such as FTP and HTTP are equally slow and inefficient, especially over long-haul Wide Area Networks (WAN). Both are based on TCP, which performs poorly over networks with high latency and throughput degrades dramatically as distance, file size and packet loss increases. Even the promise of faster data delivery utilizing WAN Accelerators falls short. The data caching and compression techniques used by these costly appliances are ineffective against the constant creation of new and unique data sets.

In this white paper, you will find out about a breakthrough transfer protocol that leverages existing WAN infrastructure and commodity hardware to achieve speeds that are hundreds of times faster than FTP and HTTP, helping to:

  • Accelerate the Acquisition of Remote Sensing Data
  • Maximize HPC Utilization
  • Simplify and Optimize Data Distribution
  • Improve Business Continuity
  • Deliver end-to-end security, 100% reliability and exceptional bandwidth control
