Tricon Geophysics Deploys Isilon IQ

SEATTLE -- Isilon Systems (Nasdaq: ISLN), the leader in clustered storage, today announced that Tricon Geophysics, Inc. has deployed Isilon IQ to power new breakthroughs in seismic data processing. Using Isilon IQ, powered by Isilon’s OneFS® operating system software, Tricon Geophysics has unified vast stores of seismic data into one, seamlessly expandable, shared pool of high performance storage to streamline workflows and dramatically accelerate seismic processing operations in the global race to discover new sources of energy.

“The individual productivity of each of our geoscientists is our most important metric. Utilizing Isilon clustered storage improves that metric and helps give Tricon a competitive edge. Tricon is poised for substantial growth over the next five years and we need a solution that offers us the speed and ease of use that the Isilon provides,” said John Contino, Executive VP, Tricon Geophysics.

“With the price of gas currently hovering at more than $3.50 per gallon on average in the US alone, the demand for new oil and gas reserves is at an all-time high, leading to an increased demand for the seismic processing services that drive discovery of these incredibly valuable natural resources,” said Brett Goodwin, VP of Marketing, Isilon Systems. “Successful seismic processing entails analysis of vast amounts of seismic data, which, in turn, requires a storage solution designed specifically for this class of data. By deploying Isilon IQ to power its seismic processing operations, Tricon has removed the burdensome management constraints of traditional storage systems and is fully prepared for its next phase of growth and expansion.”
