CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- Strata Oil (OTCQB: SOIGF)(OTCBB: SOIGF), a leader in the exploration and development of bitumen from carbonates, responded to the U.S. State Department's environmental impact statement (EIS) regarding the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline which was just released earlier today. The State Department's EIS concludes that the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline would have minimal impact on the environment over the long term with no appreciable increase in carbon emissions.
"The State Department's EIS findings represent a significant step in moving the Keystone XL Pipeline project forward," said Ron Daems, president of Strata Oil & Gas. "The starting point of the project pipeline would put the Peace River region, including Strata with its 3.4 billion barrel resource, in working proximity to the Keystone XL Pipeline. Today's report further enhances our belief that Strata is well-positioned to capture the upside of commercial carbonate-hosted bitumen production."
Daems continued: "Combined with the recent accumulation of sizeable positions in Alberta's leading bitumen producers by several high profile investors, including Warren Buffett's $524 million stake in Suncor Energy, the leading bitumen operator in the province, the positive momentum behind the oil sector continues to be on an exciting upswing. The Keystone XL Pipeline EIS findings should be great news for the more than $60 billion in proposed and current oil sands projects already underway today and the more than $207 billion in additional investment anticipated over the next 10 years. A positive decision on the Keystone XL Pipeline will mean better economics for bitumen producers, and therefore we should see more projects as a result."
The proposed Keystone XL Pipeline would give Alberta's bitumen producers access to a pipeline stretching from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast which would have the capacity to transport more than 800,000 barrels of crude per day, leading to thousands of jobs and reducing U.S. reliance on oil imports from less stable regions. Today's EIS report will set the stage for a 90 day review period for the Obama administration to make a final ruling on the pipeline project.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
