Reduced MDMS Deployment Risk
Improved MDMS Performance at Scale
Protected, Secure Meter Data
Utility companies are preparing for an explosion in new data because of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) projects. Many utilities will be moving from monthly meter reads to hourly and even 15-minute intervals.
AMI can produce a staggering 3,000-fold increase in data. As part of the meter-to-cash process, utilities will be storing most of this data in the meter data management system (MDMS) as both the operational data store for meter data validation, estimation, edition (VEE) and bill determinant creation as well as the system of record for long-term storage.
Utilities are asking questions such as "How will we store all of this data? How will we manage it? How will we back it up and protect it?"
In conjunction with its MDMS partners such as Ecologic Analytics and Itron, the EMC Optimized Infrastructure for MDMS solution provides integrated MDMS solutions from application to database to backend infrastructure.
These combined solutions leverage best-in-class EMC technology such as unified EMC VNX storage, enterprise Flash drives, EMC fully automated storage tiering (FAST), EMC NetWorker, EMC Data Domain, and EMC RecoverPoint.
