iGlass – the Private Cloud PPDM Database


Have you ever ordered data from a physical storage warehouse and waited days or even weeks to receive that data, only to realize it’s not what you really needed? The Katalyst Data Management® iGlass solution eliminates this uncertainty and significantly reduces your time spent searching for your subsurface data.

Katalyst’s iGlass data management software provides a complete set of tools that encompass the full life cycle of our customers’ subsurface assets. Built on PPDM 3.8 public data model, iGlass incorporates a web based ESRI GIS map interface for direct access to your digital subsurface data, securely stored in a private cloud. Katalyst hosts the iGlass data management software as a service (SaaS) for our clients.

Scalable and Secure

The iGlass data management software provides our clients the flexibility to locate their seismic trace data local to the business unit, while maintaining a central administration to ensure all locations are being managed according to the process framework established by each corporation. Katalyst’s iGlass solution also verifies the proprietary ownership of data, thereby reducing risks for corporations and their valuable seismic, interpretation and well data.

Multiple Domain Management

Backed by client demand, what began as a seismic data management solution has expanded to encompass data types across multiple domains.  In addition to seismic, we are also able to manage well data for our clients.  To further enhance our solution, iGlass is now capable of handling the complexities of managing interpretation project archives, and all of the associated metadata that geoscientists often are unable to access with traditional storage methods. The new interpretation module within iGlass has been branded ProjectDataStor.
