Meeting IT Infrastructure Challenges
Deploying and managing petrotechnical applications is costly and requires significant manpower with specialized skills. Selecting, procuring and installing the IT infrastructure to support these applications can take weeks, if not months, to complete. Companies are looking for ways to avoid costly delays and expense, but still drive end-to-end business efficiency across domains.
In an attempt to lower IT infrastructure costs, some companies have developed IT reference architecture to define standards for their hardware and software configuration. This approach helps provide consistency for IT assets, but it still requires manual intervention to procure and configure individual IT resources. In addition, each component in the configuration is managed separately, making the environment more complex to deploy and difficult to maintain. Advanced technology solutions are needed to meet these challenges, faster and more economically.
Transform Your Data Center With Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
The E&P industry is starting to leverage an innovative solution, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), which helps to efficiently manage individual IT elements as a unified asset. HCI systems integrate your storage, compute and networking in a way that can be scaled linearly and managed as a single unit. It also accelerates the deployment of new technology, optimizes system usage and reduces downtime. And all these advantages can be accomplished with fewer resources.
