As mentioned in last week's LinkedIn post, OpendTect v7.0.3 includes the first release of the AWS plugin. This plugin enables users not only to import from and export to S3 storage, but also to stream seismic data directly into OpendTect. Running OpendTect from an EC2 instance gives obviously the best performance, but all functionality works on premise as well.

In this short video we show you how easy it is to set up a new OpendTect survey from a VDS dataset stored in AWS S3 and being able to display the same data without data duplication or downloading to local storage.

The VDS format has been developed by Bluware Inc and contributed to the OSDU forum.

Go to the Open VDS documentation for more information on the VDS data format.
