Joins The Open Subsurface Data Universe™ Forum to Empower Operators
to Leverage the Advantages of the Cloud
As innovative organizations in the oil and gas exploration industry seek
to take advantage of the cloud, they are choosing technology providers
in their journey that can serve as true, customer-focused partners.
Qumulo is committed to helping the oil and gas exploration community use
the new tools, workflows and advantages that can only be found by
leveraging the cloud.
A collaborative group of IT specialists from oil and gas operators,
cloud services companies, software developers, and academic
institutions, the OSDU Forum aims to develop a standard data platform
that will unify exploration, development and wells data across the
subsurface community. By enabling secure, reliable, global, and
performant access to all subsurface data, the OSDU data platform will
accelerate the deployment of emerging digital solutions to support
better decision-making. This will result in faster delivery of
capabilities and reduce the implementation and lifecycle costs across
the subsurface community.
“Qumulo is excited to participate in the OSDU Forum, and enable oil and
gas operators to modernize their cloud-based file storage
infrastructure,” said Ben Gitenstein, Vice President of Product
Management at Qumulo. “Subsurface exploration workflows utilize
incredible amounts of complex file data. Qumulo’s unique ability to
deliver a complete cloud file storage solution, that provides visibility
into that data, will help the industry to find more efficient, scalable
and dynamic ways to operate.”
“We are excited to welcome Qumulo to The Open Group Open Subsurface Data
Universe™ Forum,” said Forum Director, Dr. Michelle Supper. “As more
organizations join this new Forum, including operators, suppliers, and
academic institutions, we are set to make significant headway in
creating and promoting technology standards, and using new digital
technologies and business best practices to transform the way we store,
share, and analyse subsurface data. I look forward to seeing future
contributions from Qumulo, particularly given the company’s expertise in
cloud and data storage.”
The OSDU Forum is part of The
Open Group, a global consortium that enables the achievement of
business objectives through technology standards. Members include more
than 625 organizations; spanning customers, systems and solutions
suppliers, tool vendors, integrators, academics, and consultants across
