IBM Global Name Recognition Version 3.1 Distributed Search Approach
Global Name Recognition - Distributed Search (GNR-DS) is an application that quickly and accurately searches for similar names in large lists of name data. Configured properly, a list of 200 million names can easily be searched in less than a second. It is a server that accepts requests and provides responses via XML over TCP/IP socket connections. Unlike its predecessor, NHServer, it can be scaled to meet size and performance requirements. It is also backwards compatible with all NHServer client applications (e.g., NHSGUI), and operates on all GNR supported platforms.
