Unified Virtual Data Lake

BHC3™ Unified Virtual Data Lake (UVDL) enables oil & gas operators to leverage existing enterprise systems, data stores, and data lake investments by unifying all enterprise and extraprise data into a single current virtual data image without the need to duplicate data.

  • Unify all enterprise and extraprise data: Leverage a single, current virtual data image without duplicating data by ingesting all historical and streaming data 
  • Enable critical use cases across the energy value chain: Power a wide range of Enterprise AI solutions by utilizing foundational machine learning object models for energy use cases such as upstream production optimization, asset integrity, and downstream process optimization. 
  • Scale and extend over time: Scale rapidly with predefined energy object models and canonical data interchange models in a highly scalable distributed cloud infrastructure. The logical data model and associated objects available with BHC3 UVDL are extensible and upgradable, giving enterprises flexibility and abstraction as the underlying data representations change over time. 
  • Cybersecure: Multi-layer security services support robust, industry-leading cybersecurity protocols. The platform’s multi-layered cybersecurity approach employs technical, physical, and administrative safeguards. 

Data Integration

  • Data integration enables users to rapidly, securely, and cost-effectively integrate enterprise and extraprise data to deliver end-to-end system visibility.

Data Services 

  • Data services are responsible for storing large volumes of structured and unstructured data, while also making data readily available for reporting and analytics.  
  • Data Services partition data into relational, non-relational (key/value store), and OLAP databases, and provide common database operations such as create, read, update, and delete.  

Data Abstraction Layer 

  • The data abstraction layer is a metadata-based mapping and persistence framework spanning relational, multi-dimensional, and NoSQL data stores.  
  • Through metadata, developers define objects, including attributes and functions.
