Appro Partners With CyrusOne to Host High-Performance Computing Services to Oil and Gas Industry

HOUSTON, Nov. 7 / -- Appro (http://www.appro.com/ ), a leading provider of high-performance enterprise computing systems announces its new Compute on Demand Center (CODC) in Houston, Texas. The service is designed to address the increasing demand for supercomputing power in the oil and gas industry. The CODC is located in the CyrusOne data center, and is one of the few top tier data centers in the country engineered specifically to address the dense power and cooling requirements needed for grid computing.

Conveniently located in Houston, the oil and gas industry can easily access the center for additional capacity and services to meet the short-term computational requirements planned or unplanned peak workloads, new projects and new business opportunities. Appro will present details of this service at SEG show in Houston, TX, booth number 552.

Appro's Compute On Demand offers a flexible, reliable and scalable outsourcing integrated solution -- that can be tailored to best meet customers unique needs. The benefits of this service are that customers can contract for Compute On Demand by paying only for the amount of capacity reserved for the duration of the contract period, and deploy fast and scalable capacity to support their customer's business needs with minimum financial and technical risk. In addition, they can tap into a scalable, secure and highly resilient on demand operating environment while taking advantage of excellent service and support.

Hosting the Compute on Demand Center at the CyrusOne facility not only adds an additional layer of security and availability, but also leverages the economies of scale and enables seismic data processing and interpretation much more cost efficiently than an internal solution.
