From Itron

Itron Inc. announced today the completion of benchmark performance testing of Itron Enterprise Edition (IEE) Meter Data Management software on HP Integrity servers and StorageWorks EVA8000 disk arrays.

The conclusion of extensive testing verifies IEE’s ability to support the installations of advanced metering systems exceeding ten million meters.

The benchmark testing was conducted in HP’s Marlboro test facility over several months using a realistic data set of 130 million hourly meter readings per day, equivalent to a utility of over 10 million electric and gas meters. The tests were conducted using processing windows and business rules based on Itron’s 25 years of experience with the “day-in-the-life” processing of the meter-to-cash workflow. This number of readings represents the largest scale benchmarking test in the meter data management industry to date.
