Tape Ark Launches Cloud Based Oil & Gas Services

Tape Ark Launches Cloud Based Oil & Gas Services

Tape Ark has today announced the launch of a comprehensive array of cloud based geophysical data management and data storage services for the oil industry to help manage data from acquisition through to archive. 

The oil industry has a long and combative love affair with tape based data storage.  Tape based data storage was always done as a matter of course, because no other viable options were available.  However, with significant changes to cloud storage pricing and the addition of new tools for data analytics and processing, tape is rapidly becoming the second cousin in the industry.

Tape Ark Presents At AWS User Group Forum

Tape Ark Presents At AWS User Group Forum

Really great feedback and response to Tape Ark Founder Guy Holmes’ presentation last week to the Amazon Web Services Perth User Group Forum at Flux in Perth. 

Drawing on his inspiration from the war between Blockbuster and Netflix, many years of personal and professional experience, as well as his past adventures, Guy provided a high-level overview on how he started his business, the AWS tools he is using and the battle that still lies ahead.  It was a new perspective and alternative solution to the age old problem of offsite tape collections in storage that continue to grow in size whilst the data decays, costing serious $$ but adding no value to an organisation.

Thanks to Dienst Consulting for the opportunity and Dan Jenkins Photographer for the photographs.
