Modern reverse time migration (RTM) workflows can consume computational resources that are beyond the limits of most commodity clusters. And while RTM is particularly well suited for the strengths of GPU architectures, there is much uncertainty around the optimal design and deployment for these hybrid GPU-HPC environments.

Cray and NVIDIA recently presented a live webinar about advancements in advanced seismic processing. If you missed the webinar, no worries – you can still listen to the recording.
