The Smart Grid's "Data Deluge" is no match for Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management 2.0.1, running with Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2, processed 1 billion meter reads per hour. This configuration also responded to 19.3 million requests for bill determinants per hour, with each request requiring the calculation of four bill determinants, equating to 77.2 million bill determinants calculated per hour. The test used data from 5.5 million smart meters measuring consumption in 15-minute intervals. Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management running on Oracle Exadata helps utilities process data at unprecedented rates turning data into real intelligence that improves operational efficiency across every department while enabling utilities to provide their customers with information that helps them monitor and manage their energy and water use.
