Total selects SGI for world's largest commercial HPC system

13 Feb 2012 Fremont - Total S.A. has selected SGI to provide a high performance computing (HPC) solution capable of delivering compute power of 2.3 petaflops per second, making it the clear leader - for commercial usage - anywhere in the world. The new system will consist of the latest generation of SGI ICE X servers, and greatly increases the already vast data processing power previously available to Total at their Jean Féger Scientific and Technical Centre (CSTJF) in Pau, southwest France.

"The needs for compute-intensive data processing in the oil and gas industry are constantly increasing", stated SGI interim CEO Ron Verdoorn. "With data files exceeding ten petabytes, technological innovation for reservoir modelling and simulation relies not only on compute architectures but also on storage architectures, as well. Within this framework, SGI offers a complete integrated solution including compute, storage, and services."

Representing strata in all their complexity and visualizing principal accumulations is mobilizing Total geo-science expertise, in terms of geophysicists, geologists and reservoir engineers. This new system will help Total in the quest in identifying and developing oil and gas prospects.
