High Performance Computing
Howman Seismic Services
DiGiCOR is a major player in the Australian and New Zealand market for ICT infrastructure. Founded 1997, its focus is providing server, data storage, workstation, networking, edge computing and IoT solutions — with the aim to cover the whole journey for its own customers. When a client approached DiGiCOR expressing a desire to acquire a system that able to deliver greater performance and a lower environmental impact, DiGiCOR determined quickly that powerful servers from ASUS would be the perfect solution.
Data-processing bottlenecks and a passionate desire to create a sustainable future
DiGiCOR was approached by its own client, Howman Seismic Services, a specialist in seismic processing business. The business involves processing raw seismic field data to produce subsurface imagery of a subsurface, including near-surface model building, velocity analysis, residual statics, noise removal and more. These processes involve apply complex signal-processing algorithms to process of vast amounts of data. The results are beneficial to industrial customers such as large oil companies, who leverage Howman’s subsurface insights during exploration for new natural resources.
Its need for raw compute power means the company is always seeking next-generation solutions to aid its core business. In particular, Howman faced limitations caused by its current systems, which could take up to eight hours to turn around a single job. As it was expecting an increase in workload, Howman sought expert advice on how to improve processing times — with an end goal of increasing its overall high-performance-computing (HPC) capacity. The firm also wanted to improve its green credentials, by reducing the total number of servers in use.
“It can be very hard to acquire a system that is customized to our specific needs. The ASUS RS500A-E9-RS4-based solution was a cost-effective choice — and has proved its worth.”
The National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan chose ASUS multi-node servers to build a comprehensive disaster prevention system.
