We’ve added a new Riak cluster to Temetra, allowing us to easily extend the quantity of data in Temetra. With ever increasing volumes of meter data from high frequency sources such as Flexnet, and photographs being used more and more in metering, we needed a way to safely store all this information.

We tried several new technologies before selecting Riak, which provides an elegant and reliable way to move beyond the capabilities of traditional databases. Meter data in particular, is ideally suited to these distributed computing solutions where aggregate data is often required for business intelligence, but traditional methods are unsuitable because of the volumes involved.

Temetra will be introducing new features over the coming months using the capabilities of Riak.
