Data Analysis Solution Provider Increases Query Performance by Nearly 50 Percent
Nexius, a technology consulting firm and provider of data analysis solutions, was chosen by a major telecommunications company to deploy its advanced network intelligence platform called Xplore to analyze quality-of-service data provided by a mobile phone network. Xplore had to process more than 10 million call records per hour, and the supporting database technology could not meet the customer's performance requirements. Nexius worked with Netezza, a developer of data warehouse appliances, and Microsoft to integrate Xplore with the Netezza platform. The combined solution integrates Nexius technology with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services and the Netezza data warehouse appliance. Tests show raw performance is up to seven times faster and queries are nearly 50 percent faster compared to the previous solution.
