Parallel I/O underpins Pre-Stack Pro’s file access architecture, and is critical for fast pre-stack computing. We copy your gathers to a parallel file system, which distributes data to many servers and disks. This increases bandwith dramatically, so you can quickly read data to memory in large chunks. File contents are indexed automatically, so you can easily extract key lines and subareas from large SEGY files without reading all traces.
Parallel I/O is highly scalable, so read/write speeds increase on larger servers. Midrange systems can read 1TB gathers to memory in less than an hour. You’ll spend less time accessing data, and more time working with it.
