Seismic Data Transcoding Technology
Geoscientists can realize the value that Bluware Volume Data Store (VDS) can deliver without changing legacy applications through Bluware Flexible Access Storage Transcoding (FAST) to stream subsurface data from the cloud to legacy applications and workflows.
GEOSCIENTISTS CAN TRANSCODE TO LEGACY FORMATS ON THE FLY.
Bluware ADAPTIVE STREAMING technology reduces network traffic and overall data movement. Legacy applications do not require any changes to benefit from fast-streaming performance.
Bluware FAST enables oil and gas companies to realize the value of VDS without having to update or change existing software. Bluware FAST streams data from VDS into legacy formats when the application needs it without copying the data first, so data is available instantly.
CHANGE DATA FORMATS WITHOUT DISRUPTING YOUR EXISTING ECOSYSTEM.
GET ACCESS TO SEISMIC DATA FASTER THAN DATA STORED ON LOCAL MEMORY.
When legacy applications are lifted and shifted to the cloud, the combination of the cloud network backbone and Bluware FAST makes access to seismic data faster than data stored in local memory.
HOW IT WORKS
The underlying data format in FAST is Bluware VDS, which makes data readily available through fast high-quality compression with random access. The ability to transcode on the fly from VDS to SEG-Y or other data formats enables legacy applications to read Bluware VDS with 40-times reduction in data movement and network traffic, providing a faster end-user experience and the ability to visualize large data volumes. Bluware FAST supports SEG-Y and SEP post-stack files formats and can operate on Linux and Windows operating systems.
FAST implements read-ahead prediction to deliver data to the application before the user needs it. Bluware is constantly improving the predication as we learn more about legacy application's complex access patterns.
PLUG-IN DATA ADAPTERS
Bluware FAST is built to enable adapters for data types to be added. Bluware is continually expanding the data formats supported within FAST.
