Acceleware Announces the Release of Cloud-Enabled Seismic Imaging Software
Vienna, Austria, May 30th, 2016 – Acceleware Ltd. (TSX-V:AXE) today announced that its full software suite is now accessible to customers seeking to process seismic data in the cloud. Acceleware is working with cloud provider Nimbix, a leader in cloud-based, High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure and applications. The seismic software suite features AxWAVE™ high performance seismic forward modelling, AxRTM™ reverse time migration, and AxFWI™ full-waveform inversion technology.
“With today’s tight budget constraints, building or maintaining CPU or GPU clusters is difficult to justify for most companies,” said Geoff Clark, Chief Executive Officer of Acceleware Ltd. “Yet the need to run high end seismic imaging on small or large projects is critical in making the right decisions in complex areas. Bringing our technology to the cloud provides our customers with an easy solution with no up-front capital cost.”
Many turn to cloud computing. It is changing the way companies approach performance resourcing, technology agility, and cost reduction.
“We are demonstrating a shared vision to enable Acceleware’s enterprise customers more quickly and easily consume applications on our cloud,” said Don Allen, Vice President of Channels and Alliances at Nimbix. “Acceleware customers will be able to efficiently and securely deploy their proven software-defined solutions to take advantage of the flexibility and cost effectiveness of Nimbix’s cloud".
AxWAVE is a finite-difference forward modelling library used for the fast and accurate simulation of 2D and 3D seismic wave propagation. AxWAVE leads the industry in computational performance with advanced algorithms optimized for parallel processing on multi-core CPUs and compute GPUs.
AxWAVE can be used for isotropic, VTI and TTI media, with unrestricted acquisition geometry and topography. It offers geoscientists flexible parameterization, including a high degree of control over the quality and speed trade-off inherent in finite-difference modelling. Advanced physics features include highly efficient absorbing boundaries, grid optimizations and precise source and receiver locations. It is available as a standalone application as well as a high level library that can be integrated into any existing seismic processing platform. AxWAVE has been fine tuned for optimal performance and can be used on work stations for rapid testing as well as clusters for large scale survey simulations.
Acceleware’s AxRTM is the most efficient finite-difference reverse time migration software in the seismic market. It is a pre-stack two-way wave equation migration library with isotropic, VTI and TTI capabilities that uniquely supports NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and multi-core CPU clusters. AxRTM provides seismic data processors with an economically viable reverse time migration solution. Advanced geophysical imaging features including dual TTI formulations for stability and speed, high quality imaging conditions, obliquity correction and innovative noise removal produce high quality images of exceptional detail.
Acceleware’s AxFWI is a revolutionary modular FWI application which provides the highest level of subsurface velocity model accuracy and leads the industry in compute speed. Its strength is a result of Acceleware’s proven fast and accurate finite-difference engines that power Acceleware’s robust Reverse Time Migration (AxRTM™) and Seismic Forward Modelling (AxWAVE™) solutions. Engineered for maximum performance AxFWI is optimized for modern high performance computing platforms including NVIDIA GPUs, multi-core CPUs and Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors.
