ICHEC at Rice University 2017 Oil & Gas HPC Conference

Posted on 18 January 2017

The Oil and Gas High Performances Computing (HPC) Conference, hosted annually at Rice University in Houston Texas, is the premier meeting place for networking and discussion focused on computing and information technology challenges and needs in the oil and gas industry.

Technical themes for conference sessions are developed based on current challenges and the diversity and strengths of the abstracts received. The conference has become the key venue for planners and practitioners alike and is the forum for taking the pulse of industry needs and discussing challenges, opportunities and new development at the interface of the oil and gas industry, the IT industry and the academic and research community.

Dr Cathal Ó Broin of ICHEC@Lero will present the ExSeisPIOL library, developed within the ExSeisDat project at LERO. ExSeisPIOL is dedicated to seismic processing workflows for petroleum seismology and is optimised for the structure of seismic files to deliver significant improvements in both productivity and performance on large-scale HPC systems. Using modern OO design, the library is developed on top of an interface abstraction which targets MPI-I/O and other I/O interfaces.

The library also targets the latest in burst buffer technology with appropriate access semantics or through the direct exploitation of the low-level interfaces, to deliver a significant improvement to I/O performance over standalone parallel filesystems such as Lustre and GPFS.
