Global RPM launched another Software as a Service (SaaS) offering that gives mining companies the ability to perform mining reserve calculations in a cloud environment. Called Reservation as a Service (RaaS), the new software follows the success of Transport as a Service (HaaS).
Users can upload block models and multi-story pit designs in a variety of formats directly to the cloud. After providing some basic information such as material definitions, bench configuration, and desired block size, the service will break designs down into mining shapes, returning a 3D solid of each block and a detailed breakdown of the reserves these contain. forms. RaaS leverages the powerful reserve modeling capability of RPM Global’s Reserver product, which has become the industry standard for resource estimation over the past 20 years.
RaaS takes the resource-intensive estimating process and places it in a cloud environment, leveraging the power of cloud computing and making it accessible from anywhere. It can be deployed in a secure public or private cloud infrastructure.
Commenting on the commitment to expand its cloud offerings, RPMGlobal CEO Richard Mathews said he envisions a wide range of applications that will benefit from the ability to calculate reserves in a cloud environment. “The real power of our cloud-based services, such as RaaS, is that they can scale based on real-time compute demand, enabling complex booking calculations to be solved in a fraction of the time. a traditional desktop application would require. Moving to the cloud is really changing the way we are able to solve complex problems.
“Modern mining operations require applications and platforms that can speak natively with cloud applications and their environments to achieve a holistic understanding of their digital mining data and that’s what we enable at RPMGlobal,” he said. -he declares.
Mathews said the future for RPMGlobal’s innovative software products is in the form of SaaS applications. As the suite of cloud-based and SaaS solutions continues to grow, so does the library of microservices that underpin the software. Microservices are part of a cloud-native architectural approach where a single application is made up of many independently deployable smaller components.
