"Our institute needs a reliable system with excellent computing power and a lot of storage capacity. We were impressed by transtec's expertise and the reliability of the hardware."
"We were also extremely satisfied with transtec's consultation. In principle, we knew precisely what we needed in advance; but there was still room for optimisation. transtec recommended a 10 GB connection from the storage node to the switch which speeds up the data package transfer rate tenfold compared to a standard connection of just one Gigabit. We weren't sure if this was economically feasible. Thanks to the excellent advice we received from transtec, there was no danger of bottlenecking data transfer at this point."

The seismic/seismology workgroup at the Freie Universität Berlin researches into the Earth's interior with the help of artificial and natural seismic waves. For this purpose, it developed a 3D imaging and modelling process which it applies in geotechnological and geodynamic projects on different depth scales. Two examples from the field of geotechnology: with the help of this process, a prediction range of up to 100 metres is possible during the build of the new Gotthard Basis Tunnel. Reservoirs up to five kilometres underground can be imaged and characterised. This is important when extracting petroleum and natural gas or for underground CO2 storage.
By applying the process to geodynamic problems, the scientists want to improve research into the origin of large earthquakes. The Californian San-Andreas fault can thus be researched at a depth of ten kilometres and the Ocean plate under the South American Andes up to 100 kilometres.
