The Schlumberger infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution is a private cloud that enables you to do more with your IT to address mission-critical user and business needs. The solution hosts all your oil and gas software in a single environment with a flexible, scalable infrastructure, giving you the ability to provide more collaboration, compute, and visualization power to your users—all without placing data outside of your organization. It also reduces your infrastructure total cost of ownership (TCO) and the burden of IT deployment and software application support while helping improve resource utilization.
Engineered for the E&P environment
The Schlumberger IaaS solution integrates easily with third-party E&P software and is validated and optimized for license-based Schlumberger software. The system management software incorporates an innovative GPU virtualization (vGPU) method for the Petrel E&P software platform. This provides unmatched performance for high-end 3D geophysical evaluation, modeling, and simulation workflows. Hardware flexibility through management and self-service of virtual machines provides your users with an environment that can automatically adapt depending on the requirements of their workflows.
Flexible and easy deployment
A ready-to-run infrastructure is deployed either on-premise or offsite and comes preinstalled with unique orchestration software that is designed to manage provisioning and virtualization specific to E&P user workloads. We work with you to ensure seamless integration with your security protocols and standards to meet specific compliance requirements. We also help you define standard software images to meet your users’ requirements and port your workflows to the IaaS solution. This reduces complexity and saves time during migration and deployment—ensuring minimal disruption to your operations.
Managed services from E&P software and IT experts
Our managed services provide you with efficient, scalable, and cost-effective options for operating the Schlumberger IaaS solution. This enables you to focus on the core business of E&P, leaving the management of infrastructure to our experts. Our services include hardware maintenance and support, system software management and first-level support, software release and license management, and full portfolio management covering all oil and gas software applications.
Protection for your operations
The Schlumberger IaaS solution provides a secure, modern infrastructure for today’s E&P enterprise. It is designed, engineered, and managed as a single product to mitigate threats by reducing the number of components involved in the infrastructure. Rapid and efficient updates of operating system (OS) software, E&P software upgrades, and patches further reduce the vulnerability of the IaaS solution to attack.
The Schlumberger IaaS solution provides multiple layers of security, such as the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2+, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), National Security Agency (NSA) Suite B, and Defense Information Systems Agency-Security Technical Implementation Guide (DISA-STIG).
