AWS re:Invent 2017: Oil & Gas Reservoir Simulation leveraging AWS HPC technologies a (EUT301) – #AWS

With increasing competition and shrinking budgets across the industry, Oil and Gas companies around the world are looking to optimize their oil well production, knowing that even single-digit efficiency gains could have a financial impact in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars. To do so, complex reservoir models and other compute-intensive simulations need to be run on the fly, requiring more compute and storage resources than ever before.

In this session, you will learn how customers are running complex reservoir simulations in a scalable and cost-effective way using Spot instances and such AWS HPC technologies as cfnCluster, EnginFrame, DCV, as well as the myHPC cluster management solution. We will share reference architectures and provide best practices and considerations for instance and storage selection to optimize performance and minimize cost for the most demanding HPC workloads.
