Paradigm announced that it has joined the NetApp Alliance Partner Program, as part of its collaboration with NetApp to offer optimized data storage and management solutions. With this alliance, joint customers will benefit from application-specific data protection, the ability to deploy solutions with improved infrastructure performance, and enhanced data access for more effective decision making.
Managers, geoscientists, data managers, and IT professionals face numerous challenges when dealing with increasingly large and complex data sets, multiple application vendors, and heterogeneous computing environments. The Paradigm 2011 release provides a platform for integrating application data and gives oil and gas companies more choices when creating their data management solution. The release includes new technologies that enable more efficient access to third-party vendors’ data, and more heterogeneous cross-platform data access.
“Paradigm is pleased that our long-term business relationship with NetApp has been strengthened through the NetApp Alliance Partner Program,” said Duane Dopkin, executive vice president of technology at Paradigm. “This alliance will provide new data management capabilities to our joint customers, who will gain the ability to optimize their processes with their current environment, while crafting future solutions to meet a changing technical landscape.”
“Partnering with clear industry leaders, such as Paradigm, through the NetApp Alliance Partner Program has been critical to our continued success and growth in the oil and gas market,” said Thomas Stanley, vice president, global alliances, NetApp. “Paradigm is one of the leading multinational geoscience software and analytics companies and together we are able to offer our mutual customers validated solutions that reduce data management complexity and improve productivity.”
