• Customization and tuning of the system to ensure smooth matching for about 10,000 daily transaction performed by two dual module Matchers powered by over 2000 parallel processors, 4 GB of RAM and 25 GB of local, mirrored on line disk storage.
• As an ongoing project
 2002: CEID sign a contract for enhancing the response and capacity of the AFIS Imaging module, this included in addition to the application programs, the addition of a 730Gb CLARiiON Disk array.
