Emerson E&P Software in the Cloud
The Same Best-of-Breed Applications in an Expanded Offering
More Options, Greater Flexibility
The enormous growth in the volume and complexity of data, together with the need to reduce costs and enhance productivity in the oil and gas Exploration and Production market, pose a growing challenge for today’s E&P CIOs. Different business units often have different needs and timetables, and IT departments are expected to support a wide variety of requirements. Add to that the rapid changes in hardware, operating systems and middleware, and the need for an agile, scalable compute and storage environment becomes evident.
Many companies are turning to the cloud as the solution of choice, and as the technology matures and becomes more affordable, the cloud option is increasingly attractive. Emerson is a leader in this groundbreaking technology, with years of experience in cloud solutions. Emerson E&P Software is now drawing on this expertise, and offering its entire portfolio in the cloud.
E&P Software in the Cloud is specifically attuned to the oil and gas E&P industry. This offering is uniquely positioned to provide an effective solution to our customers’ needs, without compromising our advanced science products or workflow integration.
Access Anywhere, Anytime
While the entire Emerson E&P Software portfolio will continue to be available on Windows and Linux, and those who choose to stay on their own servers will always have that option, users who prefer to run their applications on the cloud now have that choice. We offer the ultimate flexibility to suit each customer’s needs.
To access our applications in the cloud, we provide a complete solution, including a Cloud Console (Web application), which manages and monitors the cloud infrastructure (disk storage, virtual machines, clusters, access control, etc.).
The solution includes the best practices and automation tools needed to configure a robust, secure and high-performing environment for demanding G&G applications. We can also offer service agreements to operate and manage the cloud infrastructure, leveraging Emerson’s leading expertise in building secure cloud solutions.
