MetraTech Announces Breakthrough Results In Billing Performance Benchmark

MetraTech Corp., the innovative charging, settlement, customer care and billing solution product provider, today announced the results of a performance benchmark of its MetraNet? billing software running on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 and deployed on HP ProLiant servers.

MetraTech Corp., the innovative charging, billing, settlement and customer care product provider, today announced the results of a performance benchmark of its MetraNet? billing software running on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 and deployed on HP ProLiant servers. The benchmark simulated 60 million active corporate subscribers, with 5 accounts each, consuming granular, high-volume service offerings. The results demonstrate exceptional end-to-end transaction throughput, as follows:

? Rating / Pricing - 84,781 usage records/second, with each record inserted into an indexed database
? Billing - 669 bills/second, with an average of 300 events per bill
? Balance Updates - 1.2 billion/hour, including event de-duplication, with each event updating an existing balance in an indexed database.

The study was based on requirements for continuously metered, cloud computing services spanning IaaS, PaaS and SaaS billing offerings. The testing was run in a simulated production-level environment at an HP Solution Center. The scale-up environment utilized 19 HP ProLiant DL380G6 servers, an HP ProLiant DL580G6 server, an HP ProLiant DL785G6 as the database server and an HP StorageWorks XP24000 Disk Array with 640 drives running MetraNet 6.05.1, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 SP1. The database contained 300 million accounts (arranged under 60 million subscribers with 5 sub-accounts each), 40 billion usage events and production-level database indexes. HP also performed independent verification of the testing results above through re-performance on a sample basis.

The findings demonstrate that MetraTech's billing system, already known for its exceptional flexibility, scales to high volumes while managing continuous and highly granular services. The conclusions of this end-to-end revenue management benchmark demonstrate that the critical billing requirements of industries with dynamically evolving business models including Cloud, Smart Grid, Financial Services, Media & Entertainment and Telco, can be fully supported by the Microsoft server platform deployed on cost-effective HP hardware.
"In the highly competitive Cloud, Telco, Energy and Financial Services industries, businesses are challenged to cost-effectively monetize high-volume services delivered via evolving and dynamic business models," said Scott Swartz, chief executive officer, MetraTech Corp. "MetraNet, deployed using Microsoft software, provides a robust option for these organizations."

"Now, more than ever, service providers are operating under competitive pressures and need to find new ways to offer value added services to their subscribers more quickly. As a result, demand is increasing for flexible billing platforms able to support a high volume of customers and a new level of complexity demanded by today's changing business models," said Terry McGuigan, managing director, telecommunications industry, Communications Sector at Microsoft Corp. "In this benchmark, MetraTech has proven that its billing solution can support next-generation services and meet the requirements of the most demanding telecom billing environments."
