    CHALLENGE

    This system operator was faced with a large database of smart meter data (over 250 billion meter reads and growing at over 100 million per day) and variety of data retrieval and analytics requests.  The existing transaction system and its relational database system were not originally designed to handle these increased requirements. 

    WHY KX?

    The system operator needed a technology that could handle large volumes of time series smart meter data efficiently and at the lowest total cost. 

    After conducting market research, evaluations and proof of concept testing, the system provider found that KX delivered very high levels of performance at the lowest total cost of ownership. The testing of technologies involved simulated data representing 260 billion meter reads for 5 million meters and over 5 years.
