Seismic data processing is a very important tool to revealing geological structures, lithology properties, and fluid contents from seismic field data. It is also a computationally intensive operation when applied to the multiple terabytes of data acquired in a modern 3D survey. In many cases, the processing steps consist of applying relatively simple algorithms to these massive datasets. To obtain results in a timely fashion, the data is commonly processed in High Performance Computing (HPC) center. The processing results need to be visualized and verified. In this abstract, we described the approaches that the graphics server concept has been adapted to provide interactive 2D and 3D visualization for these massive datasets in HPC. Researchers transparently use the same SSH security of HPC for visualization. A web portal lets users easily obtain a remote desktop that runs in HPC graphics server. Multiple users can share a graphics server. As a result, researchers can interactively visualize hundreds of gigabytes of 2 dimensional datasets that was not able to be displayed previously. With graphics hardware in graphics server, the performance of 3D visualization is much better than the local workstation.
