We invite you to register for our Digital Energy Journal / Finding Petroleum webinar on Sept 17, 1pm UK time, exploring ways to keep oil and gas computer networks running better in exploration and production - and also better understanding the causes of slow operations.
Our presenting company, Riverbed Technology, based in San Francisco, has worked with a number of companies in the oil and gas sector, such as RigNet, Maersk, ABB, ERM and Subsea7, helping them monitor how business critical applications are running and improve application performance. We will hear from David Jenkins, solutions architect.
Keeping remote computer networks running well is relevant to people working at home, and in remote offices, who need to work with files and software on a remote server, as we see in many areas of oil and gas exploration and production.
It is also important for people working offshore and on vessels who need to work with corporate networks.
A first step is understanding the cause of sluggish network operations. Is it the applications themselves, cloud servers, the local or offshore connectivity, cybersecurity controls, or something else?
Then there are steps you can take to improve network performance, including identifying and resolving problems quickly, using "application acceleration" tools, moving to different cloud systems, and continuous network performance monitoring. There are also methods to improve file opening times, such as file compression, or keeping copies of files in different sites.
The world’s largest shipping operator, Maersk, uses Riverbed’s NPM to monitor business-critical applications and services and provide the ability to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks across the company. Consultancy Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and Subsea7 use Riverbed solutions to reduce latency to improve file transfer speeds and application performance which enables employees around the world to access large files remotely.
