DTEK Enhances Efficiency and Safety of 3D Field Modelling with New Virtual Server

DTEK | May 26, 2020

  • DTEK Oil&Gas, an energy holding company, has created a virtual server which significantly increases the efficiency and safety of the 3D field modelling process.

  • The virtual server will significantly increase the level of interaction while modelling deposits.

  • VDI technology is of particular importance for ensuring business continuity, as it allows to securely access data and continue to work remotely.

The virtual server has been created for specialists in geology and field development, who create 3D models of gas condensate fields in the Petrel software package and work with over 100 gigabytes of data

The virtual server will significantly increase the level of interaction while modelling deposits. Specialists located in different offices of the company and external experts will now be able to work on one 3D project successively. Employees can instantly obtain data from any computer, at any time, from any office, and quickly exchange this information with colleagues.

The new solution also provides centralised data backup, which increases information security and minimises the risk of data loss. The third advantage is the increased speed of calculations, modelling of deposits, and enhanced efficiency.

The project was implemented jointly by DTEK IT specialists and the DTEK Oil&Gas team. They used equipment from Hewlett Packard, and technology from VDI VmWare Horizon.

Denis Garkavy, the head of DTEK’s IT infrastructure department, also noted that when creating a virtual server, they changed an approach to working with data. Previously data was processed at users’ workstations, and now it is done at the centralised virtual server. “VDI technology is of particular importance for ensuring business continuity, as it allows to securely access data and continue to work remotely. This technology is the future of remote work.”


Using a virtual server, we not only managed to fully realise the full cycle of remote work with data and the use of specialised software, but also achieved significant flexibility in the workflow, accelerated interaction between teams and increased productivity of work. As a result, even under lockdown conditions, there are no restrictions for fulfilling the tasks of 3D modelling and analysis of results,

Ivan Gafich, DTEK Oil&Gas exploration, and prospective development director.

Furthermore, the virtual server project will be expanded for other divisions of DTEK Oil&Gas as part of the MODUS digital transformation programme and its Digital Field project.


Digital transformation is a necessary step for the efficiency and competitiveness of an enterprise in the global digital economy,

Dmitry Osyka, head of information and digital technologies at DTEK.

"Since 2018, we have been working on a comprehensive transformation of all areas of DTEK's business. As part of the Digital Field, we plan to introduce the best technologies to improve the quality of the field development strategy, maintain an optimal well operation regime, and system reliability.”

OpenVPN Introduces DIVE: Device Identity Verification & Enforcement

Businesswire | May 11, 2023

OpenVPN is proud to introduce Device Identity Verification & Enforcement (DIVE) to their cloud-based solution, CloudConnexa™ (previously known as OpenVPN Cloud). This powerful new feature will take your ZTNA structure to the next level. With the rapid growth of remote and hybrid workforces, providing secure access from a mix of BYOD and corporate-owned devices has become a critical component of ZTNA. DIVE on CloudConnexa gives Administrators the power to leverage one of the key principles of ZTNA — least privilege — granting access only to the resources a user should have, exclusively from the devices they are authorized to use. "The growth of remote workforces and the rise in mobile devices accessing company networks makes providing the appropriate access based on user and device identity a critical component of ZTNA," says Francis Dinha, CEO of OpenVPN. "The DIVE feature on Cloud Connexa makes it easy for admins to verify device identities before granting network access." DIVE boosts the ZTNA essentials Cloud Connexa already provides — hiding your applications from public view, using digital certificates for users and devices — by giving Admins the option to manually add authorized device identities (UUID) as well as lock digital certificates, automatically, to specific devices. A user trying to access the network with an alternate device, even with an authorized connection profile, will be blocked. By limiting authenticated user access to trusted devices with unique device identities, DIVE minimizes your attack surface and reduces the risk of unauthorized network access when you use Cloud Connexa. "Even if an authorized always-on IoT device's connection profile is compromised,” explains Dinha, “a bad actor will be unable to connect using the stolen profile. This additional layer of security is invaluable to IoT network security.” With DIVE on Cloud Connexa, admins can finally build ZTNA using defined access control policies for users and devices. This means organizations now have more power than ever to strengthen their security posture, reduce their attack surface, and make sure their network is truly secure. About OpenVPN, Inc. Unlike older approaches that require a mixed bag of networking and security products, CloudConnexa from OpenVPN consists of a simplified, cloud-delivered service for a fraction of the cost. And if you prefer a self-hosted solution, Access Server gives you complete control over the solution’s deployment, configuration, and management.
