The IERS is a new type of database software that is ideal for Big Data projects and the ever-expanding growth of data. It enables flexible system enhancements by using Key Value Stores (KVS╣) that keep pace as data volumes increase. By leveraging unique technologies developed by NEC Laboratories America▓, the software provides high-speed transaction processing and SQL access with a JDBC/ODBC interface, similar to a Relational Database. However, IERS' unique three-layered architecture provides a high-performance, elastically scalable database designed for high-volume workloads at a fraction of the cost of traditional Relational Databases.
NEC is working with Assigncorp, a healthcare information technology company, to develop an application that enables healthcare providers to automate outreach messaging to their patients. For example, the application sends text messages or emails to patients reminding them of upcoming appointments, saving staff time usually spent on manual phone calls. Another potential use is the ability to send customized, patient specific letters announcing a new campaign such as flu shots or pediatric vaccinations.
"Our healthcare customers are looking for a more scalable solution than what is available on the market," said
"Working with Assigncorp, NEC is providing a powerful, flexible and scalable solution that fits the needs of today's healthcare customers," said Mitsuhiro Murooka, vice president, Enterprise Technologies-IT,
Key benefits of the IERS include the following: With its three-layered architecture and in-memory implementation, offers high performance and cost effective database management system suited for high OLTP workloads Provides ability to scale-out/scale-in each layer independently without downtime to match the changes in numbers of connections, processing needs and data volume without suffering any bottleneck Includes built-in HA capabilities to avoid any downtime and leverages in-memory replication to protect transaction data Provides SQL interface to utilize existing knowledge for easy application development/migration Offers map/reduce interface using Hadoop linkage API to extract data for analysis purpose.
