HOUSTON -- Landmark has launched the PetroStor scalable disk storage platform, which provides customers with petabytes of online capacity.

Unlike traditional tape alternatives, the PetroStor storage solution provides upstream users instant access to all their seismic files and project data archives. Combining enterprise-class storage from NetApp with real-time compression from Storwize, the PetroStor solution lowers storage costs to less than $1,000 per terabyte, according to Landmark. It enables storage administrators to increase their storage capacity, along with data reliability and performance, while reducing associated infrastructure footprint, cooling and power costs, as well as administrative costs associated with tape transcription and re-mastering.

"Now, based upon our strategic alliances with NetApp and Storwize, Landmark is delivering a unique solution that provides users cost-effective online access to all their current and archived data," says said Paul Koeller, vice president, Halliburton Software and Asset Solutions. "Their data is now not only more available, but it's also more secure because they no longer need to worry about physical deterioration of tapes."
