Understanding IT in Energy Companies

IT infrastructure, an key component of energy infrastructure

The Growing Demand for Energy also Grows IT Infrastructure

Many millions of people will become consumers of energy that don’t exist today.  By 2050, the human population will have increased to 9 billion, and the number of vehicles will have doubled to 2 billion. The energy industry will increasingly rely on high-performance computing to justify significant returns on its investments in production, storage, and distribution.

One of the greatest challenges facing the energy industry is developing reliable forecasting models and accurate predictions. Demands on data access and analysis will strain existing data processing infrastructures.  Additional data processing requirements are driven by regulatory compliance and usage demand models.  Wireless sensor networks monitoring managing hundreds of functions on wells and distribution facilities will also add to the need for a reliable, secure networking and data processing infrastructure.  The Internet of “things” will add terabytes of data that will need to be captured, stored and managed.

A New Emphasis on IT in the Energy Industry

Although the energy industry generates billions of dollars, it has been recognized as not being at the forefront of its adoption of high-performance computing capabilities.  Energy companies that effectively put to use Information Technology to improve performance, model data and manage disparate systems will gain a significant competitive advantage over the next several years.

Like any trip from one place to another, you need to start by knowing where you’re coming from, what you’re bringing with you, and where you’re going.  Our Cloud Migration Checklist below will provide many of the items you need to consider when embarking on a cloud migration project or moving between cloud providers.
Cloud computing for financial services Learn about critical gaps in IT security when using AWS and Azure
AWS and Azure do not provide all of the security you need.  Learn which critical elements of your IT environment are left unprotected. Understand how IT Security can be applied while using managed hosting services from these cloud providers.

Cloud hosting is much more than just rackspace and power with Synoptek.  We do not offer “one size fits all” solutions like the large commodity providers, instead we “right size” your hosting infrastructure to meet your business needs.  Our focus is on the performance, security, and reliability of our cloud hosting services rather than building server density to generate higher margins for us.
