Spectrum Boosts Houston Processing Capacity by 50%

Spectrum has completed a series of computer facility upgrades at its regional data processing and imaging center in Houston, Texas that will increase capacity by 50%.

The technology upgrades applied over the past 6 months will prepare Spectrum's largest computing facility for a scheduled increase in Multi-Client processing projects from Q4 2009 onwards, and help fulfill increased international demand for pre-stack depth and time imaging services on behalf of oil company clients.

Technology upgrades included increasing the CPU units in the Houston processing clusters by 50% and adding two new master servers. Other new equipment included a new 32 core Sun M5000 server with an additional 120Tb of high-specification Onstor primary disc storage. The processing centre infrastructure has also been enhanced with additional electrical and air conditioning support to maintain optimum operating conditions.
