Huawei provides end-to-end HPC solutions that cover the basic layers (architecture, hardware, system and cluster management), and exploration and production service application layer. These solutions help oil and gas companies accelerate exploration and production, shorten the drilling and production periods, and increase operational efficiency.
Huawei’s holistic HPC solutions have completed joint certification, testing, and optimization with products from industry-leading oil and gas service software vendors. These solutions are the ideal choice for oil and gas companies, as they fully meet the unique characteristics of the oil and gas industry.
Trends and Challenges
Industry 4.0 is gaining momentum as emerging technologies such as cloud computing, Big Data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and mobility are increasingly penetrating the industrial sector. Mass information must be rapidly processed to accelerate decision-making.
Oil and gas customers have submitted unique requirements for ICT construction. Included are conditions relating to oil and gas as non-renewable resources required to perform in-depth analysis of geological survey data to identify additional usable resources. Another condition, that should be met, relates to IT devices and systems deployed independently, leading to low resource usage and complex O&M. Finally, the collection and storage of mass data may be vulnerable to security risks, and therefore the data needs to be carried over agile and efficient networks.
Huawei provides end-to-end solutions that build on a wide range of storage, switches, and servers. In addition, Huawei’s products have completed compatibility and performance testing with Altair and Bright Computing clustering and dispatching software, Schlumberger service application software, and Halliburton products.
Huawei’s solutions are differentiated and meet diverse application scenarios. For example, Huawei offers a CPU networking solution for land exploration to meet single-precision computing needs. For offshore exploration, Huawei delivers a GPU networking solution that is applicable for double-precision computing requirements. In short-term exploration, Huawei provides an exploration cloud solution that uses a public cloud leasing mode to provide services for customers.
Huawei’s solutions are holistic to accelerate exploration and production and differentiated to reduce service processing error rate. Specifically, Huawei’s HPC Solution decreases the average service processing period from hours to minutes and decreases the service processing error rate from an average of 10 percent down to 2 percent.
