Using the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform to Manage Massive Volumes of Smart Meter Data
The Internet of Things is expected to connect billions of sensors that continuously gather data about the machines, assets, and environment that they monitor. Organizations seeking to capitalize on the business opportunities that sensor networks create require a scalable data analytics platform to manage and analyze their data sets at the speed of their business. To demonstrate how the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform enables your organization to capitalize on the massive market opportunity of the Internet of Things, this white paper presents a smart metering use case for a large electric utility with 40 million customers. The results show how the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform delivers consistent, cutting-edge performance month after month, ultimately storing more than a decade of data (22.8 trillion smart meter readings, 726 TB of data) on a cluster of eight HP ProLiant DL380p generation 8 servers.
