Storage and processing of remote sensing data as well as any other types of spatial data require significant processing power and a lot of free data space. Nowadays this problem can be solved by using cloud technologies which provide new opportunities for working with spatial data.
For companies which work in GIS industry it is very important to support and develop cloud services. Nevertheless, when using cloud services any company appears to be very dependent on the terms set by the supplier without mentioning that not all data and software suppliers use cloud services.
SOVZOND Company offers information systems based on supercomputers and calculating clusters to clients who need to store and process large volumes of spatial data.
Information system includes:
Energy saving system;
Data storage system;
Calculating block based on two 6-core Intel Xeon X5650 processors and 8 Tesla M2090 graphics processors capable of calculating at the highest speed of up to 5,5 Tflpos and installing up to 192 gb of operating memory. Based on HP ProLiant SL6500 ScalableSystem product line the system provides high scalability significant cost decrease and effective usage of energy resources. In order to maximize calculating power the system uses NVIDIA Tesla graphics processors of the 20th series which are the fastest parallel processors for high performance calculations. Based on Fermi calculating architecture Tesla graphics processors are created for high performance calculations. There is a perfect solution for seismic data processing, biochemistry modeling, weather and climate modeling, calculations in the field of finances, CAE, CFD and data analyzes.
Energy saving system is based on APC Symmetra and can be adjusted depending on how much the equipment is used. High performance 3-stage energy saving system with a supersonic operating readiness which is affective for data centers of any size or separate zones of highly consistent power.

Data storage system HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 has the same modern architecture as the one which was chosen by 8 out of 10 largest service suppliers in the world. This is the only platform which performance is enough to double the consistency of virtual machines on physical servers. As data is stored in one system which supports such options as integrated storage and automated level creation, users can apply a small scale system and enlarge it later without any limitations.
External server HP ProLiant SL390s G7 is in the new product line HP ProLiant SL6500 Scalable System. SL390s G7 consists of three server shelves. 1U shelf is used for calculating resources while 2U and 4U are used for graphics processors: up to 3 graphics processors in 2U shelf and up to 8 in 4U shelf. Both shelves use the same motherboard and are placed into HP ProLiant s6500 box of 4U height. SL390s G7 – is a server with 2 sockets for Intel processors, 12 DDR3 DIMM slots, 2 «1 Gb Ethernet» ports, 1 «10 Gb Ethernet (SFP+)» port and an additional Infiniband (QSFP) port. S6500 box with a height of 4U can be filled with up to 8 semi-width servers. Each server can be operated separately. It can also support up to 4 energy blocks, both unreserved and reserved fans which can be Hot swapped.
