  • Data Base Acceleration for Oil & Gas Applications using Flash Storage
  • Broadcast Date: September 18, 2014
  • Data bases require guaranteed levels of storage performance and high availability of data. Flash technologies are the highest performance server storage solution available, perfectly suited to meeting all of the needs of mission-critical databases. PCIe-based flash storage provide microsecond I/O latencies, millions of IOPS, and tens of GB/s of bandwidth per server. Shared access, data replication between servers, and caching capabilities are needed to turn industry-standard servers and server clusters into powerful distributed storage. Whether you have a standalone data base running on a single system or tens of Oracle RAC nodes, the combination of the latest flash architecture & enterprise software can provide a storage solution with unprecedented performance and scalability inside the servers of your choice.

  • Remedial Cementing Forum
  • Broadcast Date: August 19, 2014
  • Remedial cementing procedures are required during the life of all wells. Remedial work is fundamentally different from “primary cementing.” Where primary cementing materials and techniques are used to seal and maintain casing or liners in a drilled hole, there are two categories of remedial cementing: squeeze cementing and plug cementing.

  • High Collapse Tubular, a Solution to Well Design Challenges
  • Broadcast Date: July 8, 2014
  • Over the last years, the evolution of technical needs (such as HP/HT wells, annular pressure build-up, drilling through salt dome) leads OCTG customers to require tubular offering improved collapse resistance vs. the standard API one. Today, pipe collapse pressure is calculated in accordance with API 5C3 equations which are based on empirical approach. However these values do not always answer today to the new technical customer well design. That is why Vallourec has developed its own high collapse product lines, labeled VM HC or VM HCSS (for sour-services application), which offer collapse pressure exceeding in average by 30% the standard API collapse pressure. These high collapse products remain fully compliant with API standard. The higher collapse pressure is achieved thanks to specific manufacturing process and best-in-class quality control. This performance is determined and guaranteed by using Vallourec proprietary collapse model.

  • Embedded SSD Flash Management
  • Date: 27 August, 2014
  • This white paper will explore NAND flash technology and its inherent problems, and explain how proper flash management algorithms can address these issues and transform NAND flash into a reliable media with a long lifespan. The discussion will focus on single-level Cell (SLC) flash technology, due to its added reliability over multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash. The flash management algorithms addressed in this document are implemented in the proprietary flash controllers HGST uses in its small-format embedded products: e.g., CompactFlash, embedded SATA, etc. By utilizing a combination of strong wear leveling techniques, an effective ECC engine and a diligent bad block management system, the life expectancy of embedded flash products can be greatly maximized.
