EAGE London 2013: Event Recap

As we trek back to the U.S. after a busy week at EAGE 2013, we wanted to provide a quick recap of all the conference festivities that happened in London. EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) is the largest and most comprehensive geoscience event in the world. It lasts about a week, and consists of a conference and a technical exhibition presenting the latest developments in geophysics, geology and reservoir/petroleum engineering.

Booth #266 was EMC Isilon’s home for the week. We had tons of activity going on in our booth with giveaways, demos, meetings with partners, customers, or just passerbys intriqued by our swag.


 We raffled off a handful of Apple TVs and kinetic bracelets to those who attended the demos and presentations. Check out one of the lucky winners below!


 EMC Isilon hosted three separate demo pods throughout the week that showcased how we meet the increasing data storage demands of the oil and gas industry and optimize collaborative workflows:

  1. Demo 1: Featured how the functionality of the Ocean Plug-in for Isilon will allow Petrel users to invoke Isilon snapshots to make copies of project files.
  2. Demo 2: Featured EMC’s Exploration and Production Infrastructure (EPI) solution for oil and gas and how our new model is simpler to manage and scales as our customers’ data grows and their performance needs increase.     
  3. Demo 3: Featured EMC’s Next Generation Seismic Data Management system based on Isilon scale-out technology, and how—in partnership with Wipro—this seismic data management solution will enable data to be loaded once and then delivered to interpretation applications with quality-assured automated data transfer.


What an exciting week it was in London! Special thanks to all who stopped by our booth and attended our presentations. We had a great time and look forward to seeing you all again soon!
