Newfield Exploration Standardizes on NetApp Storage for Global Flexibility and Investment Protection
With annual revenues in excess of $1 billion, Newfield Exploration is an independent crude oil and natural gas exploration and production company that ranks among the top operators in the Gulf of Mexico in terms of daily gross production. The challenge was to make sure of performance and flexibility, improve availability/recoverability, and eliminate costly local storage by standardizing across global geographies. Newfield implemented a NetApp IP SAN solution to store key data using the iSCSI protocol. A NetApp NearStore system adds capacity for economical archival storage and non-performance-critical seismic attribute processing.
