GE's Digital Energy business says that its Smart Metering Operations Suite (SMOS) version 4.0.1 has achieved Oracle Exadata Optimized status through Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

According to GE, the achievement demonstrates that its SMOS has been tested and tuned on the Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Oracle Exadata provides a database of flash memory to store metering information for smart metering operations. Together with this hardware, GE says its SMOS can process data from 100 million smart meters in less than 100 minutes.

The Oracle Exastack Optimized programĀ  allows partners, such as GE, to utilize OPN enablement resources and dedicated lab environments to help develop, test and tune their applications.
