WASHINGTON, D.C. – The iStore has launched Digital Oilfield Express (DOX). This is the first digital oil field offering online-through-subscription service.

DOX is a set of exploration and production functions such as document management and data visualization that uses the Windows Azure Services Platform. This Azure cloud computing platform avoids the up-front capital required for a large software implementation and hardware addition, says iStore.

“Recognizing that the digital oilfield concept would allow (smaller independent operators) to better manage and use exploration and production data, we looked to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud computing platform as the means to deliver essential and affordable technology to this largely underserved market,” said Barry Irani, iStore CEO, at the introduction today of the program..

The Windows Azure platform provides oil and gas solution providers and enterprise customers of all sizes the ability to extend and deploy business services into the cloud and enables improved partner integration.
