Digital Realty Partners with Nimbix to Deliver Cloud-Based Solution for Oil & Gas

Solution offers oil and gas data center clients specialized technology to manage high performance computing needs

SAN FRANCISCO, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR), the global data center and colocation company, announced today that its Dallas and Houston facilities are housing and enabling an enterprise high-performance computing (HPC) cloud solution from Nimbix. The two companies have established this alliance to offer specialized HPC solutions to clients in the oil and gas industry.

HPC cloud solutions are an alternative to legacy IT infrastructures because they are faster to deploy, easily scale to uses and business cycles, and require less capital and operating investment.

"The combination of high-performance computing and cloud technologies is a powerful solution, with significant client benefits," said Steve Hebert, Nimbix Chief Executive Officer. "Clients who need immediate, high-performing computing solutions for shorter time frames will realize significant efficiencies."

The enterprise HPC-as-a-Service solution from Nimbix, powered by its innovative JARVICE cloud platform, frees companies from having to manage HPC environments and resources. Oil and gas companies use HPC to more rapidly analyze large amounts of geological data, thereby enabling these organizations to make more efficient and effective operational decisions.

Matt Miszewski, Digital Realty SVP of Sales and Marketing said, "Providing easy access to cloud services is a natural progression in our support of the oil and gas industry. Our alliance with Nimbix facilitates the cost-effective generation, analysis, and sharing of geophysical data."

Digital Realty has an extensive global footprint of data centers, including facilities in Houston, Austin, and Dallas, Texas. The HPC Cloud solution from Nimbix can support any industry requiring complex computing, including energy, finance, and healthcare.
