Migration of Repsol’s exploration data to the cloud delivers significant performance and collaboration improvements
Emerson (NYSE: EMR), a leader in digital transformation solutions, announced today it has successfully migrated the exploration data of Repsol, a global energy company, to the cloud. Cloud capabilities enable companies to securely store the data that powers vital analytics, helping optimize operations and achieve higher levels of performance.
Migration to the cloud proved to be a cost-effective alternative for Repsol, eliminating the need to invest in new hardware, and increasing collaboration, visualization capabilities, and performance for its exploration activities. During the three-month project, the team migrated Emerson’s E&P software suite and approximately 90 terabytes of data from Repsol’s on-premise locations in Houston and Madrid to the cloud.
After only one hour of onboarding, users were up and running, and benefitting from working in a cloud environment. Since completion of the project, Repsol has seen improved performance. Repsol’s globally distributed asset teams are making decisions and achieving results faster using the data, as well as collaborating more effectively across projects.
The movement to the cloud is part of the ambitious digitization program that Repsol is carrying out. Using Emerson’s optimized approach for migrating its software and data, the project was accomplished with no work disruption. Repsol geoscientists were able to leave work on Friday and return on Monday to a new environment, with no downtime or lost data.
“As one of our closest collaborative partners, we worked hand-in-hand with Repsol to perform a seamless migration from one environment to another,” said Steve Santy, president of E&P software at Emerson. “Our team has developed a customized approach specifically aimed at optimizing the migration of our solutions and our clients’ data to the cloud in a way that is transparent to users. Simply put, our tools and services make it fast and easy to migrate to the cloud, with minimal impact on users.”
The close partnership between Repsol and Emerson was a key factor in the success of the project.
