National Oilwell Varco (NOV) is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sale of equipment and components used in oil and gas drilling and production operations and the provision of oilfield services to the upstream oil and gas industry.
NOV is creating a data platform for time-series data from sensors and control systems to support the deep analytics and machine learning. The company has created a very compact, lossless storage mechanism for sensor data. Each terabyte of storage has the capacity to store 750 billion to 5 trillion data points. This is equivalent to 20,000 – 150,000 sensor-years of 1 Hz data and will allow NOV to store all sensor data on a single MapR cluster.
