The Opportunity

Unable to handle massive volumes of time-series data (1.5 TB and growing)

Need to search and analyze high velocity, streaming data in near real time

Rigid data model of SQL Server can result in massive loss in performance

The Solution

The Results

50,000 – 60,000

writes per second and 20,000-40,000 reads per second.

235 millions

of liters of water saved every day, and growing.


devices with massive volumes of data globally handled without latency or downtime.
