Dot Hill Storage Solutions Selected By CGG To Serve Oil & Gas Customers

LONGMONT, Colo., Aug. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq:HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today announced it has signed an agreement with CGG, a fully integrated geoscience company serving the global oil & gas industry. Dot Hill's AssuredSAN 4000 Series storage systems will be implemented in CGG's subsurface imaging centers and have been selected as part of the company's reference architecture. The Dot Hill AssuredSAN 4000 Series will house geophysical data that CGG uses to develop models to help its oil & gas customers locate oil reserves.

With a total workforce of over 9,800 in more than 70 locations worldwide, CGG is a fully-integrated geoscience company providing leading geological, geophysical and reservoir capabilities to its broad base of customers, primarily from the global oil and gas industry. Through its three complementary business divisions of Equipment, Acquisition and Geology, and Geophysics & Reservoir (GGR), CGG brings value across all aspects of natural resource exploration and exploitation.

"Our collaboration with CGG expands Dot Hill's growing footprint in the oil & gas space," said Garrett Wein, vice president of OEM sales, Dot Hill. "This is a key strategic vertical market for Dot Hill due to expanding opportunities in both domestic and overseas energy exploration which will drive significant growth in the demand for storage. Customers such as CGG require storage solutions capable of delivering both fast random I/O and sequential I/O for different imaging steps. The AssuredSAN 4000 Series was tested extensively for use with CGG's seismic information acquisition and analysis computing systems and delivered exceptional results. Featuring 99.999 percent availability and scalability to hundreds of terabytes, the AssuredSAN 4000 Series is an excellent fit for oil & gas applications."

The newest member of the AssuredSAN family, the 4000 Series, sets a new Dot Hill performance standard. Designed with a powerful processor, these systems provide accelerated performance for sequential workloads, making them ideal solutions across vertical markets such as oil & gas, telecommunications, media and entertainment, big data analytics and digital imaging.
