Hardware

One of the main factors contributing to our success in the past has been our system. It is not huge by the standards of major processing houses worldwide, but we generally only take on a limited number of projects at a time (or in this case it will be one!). Normally our system resources vastly out-weighs our needs. We recently completed a 600sqkm 3D marine project recently with a state-of-the-art processing flow and turned it around in 3mnths using only 42 of our processor nodes. The system currently available  consists of 2046 processor nodes or nearly six times the size. Keep in mind also that there will only be one project fighting for access to our system, not dozens of desperate projects as would be the case in the majors. These days hardware is cheap and easily available. We could double our system within three weeks if necessary
