United States : Lenovo Works With NVIDIA, Magma and Hue to Develop Game-Changing Visualization Technology Solution for Exploration Geophysics.

Today, at the 76th EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2014, Lenovo (booth #3236) announced its collaboration with NVIDIA, Magma and Hue to develop a new visualization technology solution for exploration geophysics.

The combined solution leverages Lenovo ThinkStation D30 workstations, NVIDIAA TeslaA K40 GPU accelerators and Magma GPU expansion technology to power Hue s visualization technology for exploration and production application development, providing the ability to render massive amounts of geophysical visualization data in seconds.

Exploration geophysics is the key to oil and natural gas discovery, but the industry continues to be hindered by the inability to process the increasing amounts of seismic data required to render and visualize complex earth models. While innovative companies like Hue develop technology that promises to exponentially improve geophysicists discovery capabilities, underperforming computing technology continues to slow these applications, extending exploration projects by hours, days and even weeks.

For the first time, this new, combined visualization solution brings high-performance computing (HPC) to the Hue software development toolkit, minimizing delays and transforming the way geophysicists process seismic data. Delivering a 64-bit optimized environment, the solution analyzes terabytes and even petabytes of data in seconds, enabling geophysicists to execute complex algorithms quickly in a seamless workflow.

In exploration, data normally arrives late, and decision schedules often shift forward, squeezing the time available for analysis, said Dr. Ron Masters, Geoscience advisor at Headwave. New opportunities always require bigger data volumes, more sophisticated imaging and new interpretation concepts. Our need for speed has never been greater.

The foundation of the combined solution is the Lenovo ThinkStation D30 workstation, the highest performing, most reliable and most user-friendly workstation technology available. It includes multiple NVIDIA Tesla K40 GPU accelerators connected via Magma s ExpressBox 3600 GPU expansion system to deliver HPC-class computing capabilities. Hue s innovative HueSpace software toolkit uses NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to combine lightning-fast computation with state-of-the-art domain-oriented, multi-dimensional visualization and intelligent handling of exploration and production data in a single, easy-to-use toolkit.
