Overview

Overview

MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme is a hardware/software solution that provides high speed, high volume biometric identification for national-scale projects.

MegaMatcher Accelerator Extended is designed to run on server hardware with dual Xeon processors and 128 GB of RAM. This version is shipped as an installation CD image that includes Linux OS and fast multi-biometric identification software. Optionally, a ready-to-use solution with server hardware and pre-installed MegaMatcher Accelerator software can be provided.These biometric matching engines can be used with MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extreme:

MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended is a family of biometric solutions for fast fingerprint, iris and face matching on the server-side of an AFIS or multi-biometric system. The solutions are intended for national-scale biometric identification projects with millions of people enrolled in the database.

  • These biometric matching engines can be used with MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended:
    • Fast fingerprintiris and face matching engines that can be used separately or together.
    • Fingerprint, face, iris and voiceprint matching engines that can be used separately or together to validate matching results produced by the fast fingerprint, face and/or iris engines.
  • Available as installation CD image which includes:
    • Debian Linux OS;
    • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended software.
  • Server hardware is optionally available. In this case the MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended software will be pre-installed by Neurotechnology on each unit, and the customers will receive ready-to use hardware/software solution.

System Requirements

System Requirements

  • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended software should be installed on HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 server hardware with these specifications:
    • 2 x Intel Xeon processor E5-2680 v3 (12 cores, 30M cache, 2.5 GHz);
    • RAM, depending on the number of biometric engines:
      • 128 GB RAM (8 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for single biometric engine;
      • 256 GB RAM (16 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for two biometric engines;
      • 384 GB RAM (24 x 16 GB DDR4 2Rx4 PC4-2133P-R) – for three biometric engines;
    • 6 x 300 GB HDD (SAS, 10,000 rpm);
    • HP iLO Advanced;
    • HP Smart Array P440ar/2G FIO Controller.
  • Multiple MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended units can be combined using the included cluster software to reach a higher level of performance.

client communication module is included with MegaMatcher 10.0 Extended SDK. The module allows the sending of a task to MegaMatcher Accelerator, querying the status of the task, retrieving the results and then removing the task. A high-level API is provided for the developer, all low-level communications are hidden.

Technical Specifications

Technical Specifications

Database storage capacities for a single MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended unit are:

  • 40,000,000 fingerprint recordsor
  • 50,000,000 iris recordsor
  • 10,000,000 face records for each MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended

If a biometric template contains several fingerprint, face and/or iris records, the database storage capacity changes proportionally. The table below shows storage capacities for some combinations of fingerprints, faces and/or irises records. There are no limitations on the quantity of fingerprint, face or iris records in a template.

      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 fingerprint engine license.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 iris engine license.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 face engine license.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 fingerprint and face engines license – the engines may be used as a fused matching engine.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 fingerprint and iris engines license – the engines may be used as a fused matching engine.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 face and iris engines license – the engines may be used as a fused matching engine.
      • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 fingerprint, face and iris engines license – the engines may be used as a fused matching engine.
    • MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 Extended units with server hardware and pre-installed biometric engines. The available engines are the same, as mentioned above.

    All versions of MegaMatcher Accelerator 10.0 also include Fast Fingerprint Matcher, Fast Face Matcher, Fast Iris Matcher and Voice Matcher components for use in situations where the MegaMatcher Accelerator matching engine is either not required or cannot be used.

     

    Disaster recovery licenses for MegaMatcher Accelerator software are also available. The disaster recovery licenses are intended for using in disaster recovery centers (DRC). A DRC is a location which has the same equipment as the primary site, completely mirrors the data environment of the primary site and is on standby while the primary site is working. If the primary site fails, the DRC takes over operations.

     

    Please contact us for more information about the disaster recovery licenses.
