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.”

City of Corona Modernizes IT with Citrix to Support Remote Work

Citrix | August 02, 2022

Organizations around the world continue to struggle with whether and how to enable remote work, but the City of Corona isn’t among them. The municipality embraced the concept long before the pandemic forced it to, and has built a powerful digital workspace that provides access to everything its employees need to engage and be productive, wherever they happen to be. On August 4, the City will discuss its journey to remote work and how it is using solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) and its partner NVIDIA to accelerate it during an exclusive Fireside Chat. The journey began five years ago when the City of Corona, which sits in the heart of California earthquake and wildfire territory, implemented Citrix digital workspace solutions to “disaster proof” its operations. “In the event of an emergency, we need to be agile, We need access to our systems and our data and we’d like our employees to be able to work from anywhere." Kyle Edgeworth, Deputy CIO, City of Corona Citrix enables both. And following a successful pilot, Edgeworth and his team moved to modernize its IT infrastructure and cloud-first strategy to support a wider implementation. It started by dissociating traditional hardware from the computing equation and replacing it with Citrix’s cloud-delivered digital workspace solutions, Microsoft Azure NVv6 series powered by NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology and Azure Virtual Desktop. “We made the decision to ultimately transition everything to the cloud,” Edgeworth said. “Citrix was the logical choice to pair with Microsoft, as it enhances the value of Azure Virtual Desktop, providing enterprise tools that improve user density and performance, allow us to provision workloads on-demand, and simplify how our team manages images and applications.” There are benefits to using Citrix alongside NVIDIA as well. As a Citrix Ready™ Partner, NVIDIA virtual GPU technology is verified to work with Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops™ to power virtual workstations, desktops, and apps with an immersive user experience that keeps employees productive and engaged. Edgeworth will share additional insights on the City of Corona’s decision to go all-in on the cloud and how the municipality is leveraging virtual technologies to build a future-proof infrastructure to support remote work during the August 4 event. He will be joined by: Chris McMasters, Chief Information Officer, City of Corona Calvin Hsu, VP, Product Management, Citrix Vishal Ganeriwala, Senior Director, Product Management, NVIDIA About Citrix Citrix builds the secure, unified digital workspace technology that helps organizations unlock human potential and deliver a consistent workspace experience wherever work needs to get done. With Citrix, users get a seamless work experience and IT has a unified platform to secure, manage, and monitor diverse technologies in complex cloud environments.

VMware Advances Multi-Cloud Management with VMware Aria

VMware | September 02, 2022

VMware Explore US 2022 – More organizations are delivering applications across public clouds and at the edge, and they’re increasingly using Kubernetes to manage and scale their modernized and cloud-native apps. However, managing apps and infrastructure in a multi-cloud, especially public cloud, and multi-technology environment is complex. Teams have to control costs, ensure performance, and manage consistent security policies across these diverse and distributed environments. Today at VMware Explore 2022, VMware (NYSE: VMW) is unveiling a multi-cloud management portfolio called VMware Aria, which provides a set of end-to-end solutions for managing the cost, performance, configuration, and delivery of infrastructure and cloud-native applications. Powering VMware Aria is VMware Aria Graph, a graph-based data store technology that captures the complexity of customers’ multi-cloud environments. “With multi-cloud realities taking hold, managing overall cloud spend, resource utilization, and application performance, security and compliance across different clouds can be increasingly difficult, and consequently, can lead to overspending, inefficiencies, and increased risk. Developers need cost, performance, security, and configuration data – often sitting in disparate tools – to understand the complete characteristics of the application that they are building, VMware Aria's API-first approach enables developers, SREs and Platform Engineering teams to pull relevant, correlated data from any source for quicker application analysis and debugging, while providing complete visibility into the cost, performance, and configuration of applications and workloads across cloud environments for Platform Ops, IT Ops, and Cloud Ops teams.” Purnima Padmanabhan, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Management, VMware VMware Aria features new and expanded capabilities for cloud native and multi-cloud management across three categories - VMware Aria Cost powered by CloudHealth, VMware Aria Operations, and VMware Aria Automation. VMware Aria complements and extends management of the development, delivery, DevSecOps, and lifecycle of cloud-native apps in VMware Tanzu platform. VMware Aria is anchored by VMware Aria Hub, which provides centralized views and controls to manage the entire multi-cloud environment, and leverages VMware Aria Graph to provide a common definition of applications, resources, roles, and accounts. Also announced at VMware Explore 2022 are a set of new end-to-end solutions that deliver cloud governance, cloud migration, and business insights at scale. VMware Aria Graph and VMware Aria Hub: a new technology that powers VMware Aria At the heart of VMware Aria’s new public cloud management capabilities is VMware Aria Graph, a graph-based data store that captures the resources and relationships of a multi-cloud environment. Expressly designed for the operational challenges of cloud-native applications and environments, VMware Aria Graph provides a single source of truth that is updated in near-real time. Other solutions on the market were designed in a slower moving era, primarily for change management processes and asset tracking. By contrast, VMware Aria Graph is designed expressly for cloud-native operations. Leveraging a fundamentally different architecture to capture many-to-many relationships, scale to hundreds of millions of objects, and be updated in near-real time, VMware Aria Graph meets the multi-cloud management requirements of the largest and most demanding enterprise. VMware Aria’s graph data store and API services enable it to seamlessly integrate with third-party solutions such as observability and application performance management tools. Data collected and normalized from native public clouds, on-prem clouds, VMware tools and third-party tools within Aria Graph enriches operations, automation, and cost metrics in customers’ existing VMware vRealize, CloudHealth by VMware and VMware Tanzu Observability products, bringing application-aware management to private/hybrid clouds in addition to native public clouds. VMware Aria Graph will be made available to customers as a capability within VMware Aria Hub. First introduced at VMworld 2021 as Project Ensemble, VMware Aria Hub provides centralized views and controls to manage the entire multi-cloud environment. Key capabilities of VMware Aria Graph include: Highly scalable – supports cloud native environments Scales to hundreds of millions of nodes Graph data store captures the many-to-many relationships needed to fully understand dependencies Enables viewing historical configurations, critical in root cause analyses Event-based collection – supports high rate of change Captures change events whenever they happen Captures full granularity Federated and modular architecture – enables aggregation of data from any source Plug-and-play approach allows you to layer data from third-party tools Aligns operational data on a single, holistic source of truth, enabling teams to make better decisions and work more efficiently Unified GraphQL API – simplifies consumption by both developers and ops teams Establishes a single, dev-friendly, consistent interface to multi-cloud environments Precise GraphQL queries provides lightning quick and extremely efficient access to data VMware Launches New End-to-End Solutions to Deliver Cloud Governance, Cloud Migration, and Business Insights at Scale Multi-cloud introduces new, difficult to solve management challenges than cut across today’s complex, distributed environments. VMware Aria provides features and functions that span management disciplines and clouds to deliver unique value for multi-cloud governance, cross-cloud migration, and actionable business insights. In addition, there are three new end-to-end management services built on top of VMware Aria Hub and VMware Aria Graph: VMware Aria Guardrails – Automate enforcement of cloud guardrails for networking, security, cost, performance, and configuration at scale for multi-cloud environments with an everything-as-code approach VMware Aria Migration – Accelerate and simplify the multi-cloud migration journey by automating assessment, planning, and execution in conjunction with VMware HCX VMware Aria Business Insights – Discern relevant business insights from full-stack event correlation leveraging AI/ML analytics Introducing the New VMware Aria Family Name VMware Aria represents a new, single Cloud Management offering.
