Unleash Your Data's Potential℠

Multi-Cloud Services and Subsurface Cloud Storage

With cloud services for subsurface data, Katalyst makes it easier for oil and gas companies to access and utilize their data assets. As your seismic and well data management partner, Katalyst stores and curates your metadata through our D-mass storage system, providing a multi-cloud storage solution that is always accessible in a secure environment. Clients access their seismic and well data archives through Katalyst’s iGlass PPDM database, a web-based ESRI map designed especially for managing subsurface data. Whether you’re downloading your data locally, or sending it to third-party, your geoscience data is readily available for processing, interpretation and data analytics.

Katalyst Data Management

Oil and Gas Cloud Computing

As the first digital content managers to implement the PPDM data model for seismic, subsurface and well information, Katalyst integrates innovative technology throughout our cloud services to provide end-to-end geological and geophysical (G&G) data management and oil and gas cloud environment solutions. With our private Tier 2 datacenters and highly secure databases, we provide clients peace of mind in that their seismic and well data resources are protected and accessible.

Cloud Security is our Priority

Katalyst is constantly evaluating its security architecture in an effort to provide the highest level of cloud security, privacy and safety for our customers. Because there are important security issues associated with electronic transactions, strict internal procedures are in place within Katalyst to control our online services – from training employees, to confirming customer data transmissions, to prevent service interruptions. We safeguard information according to industry security standards and procedures, and we continually assess new technology for protecting information.

Your subsurface data is stored on Katalyst’s network and access to that network is strictly controlled by state-of-the-art firewall technology. Strict intrusion detection and prevention policies are in force, protecting your data from outside threats. Information exchanged over the internet is encrypted.
