The Silicon Review
MT-C is a computer software company specializing in data storage and protection systems since 1997. The company is led by Valery Guilleaume – Chairman & CEO, Jessica Delage – CFO
Based in Liege, Belgium, MT Consulting also known as MT-C was formed through a spin-off from the laboratories of Memorex Telex that developed enormous Intellectual Property (IP) and know-how of disk and tape automation and storage. Valery Guilleaume sensed opportunities to disrupt the storage market, and with his entrepreneurial experience, he decided to make a change in the market with a new platform – NODEUM. In order to build this platform, he acquired MT-C in 2012. He chose MT-C because of the factors such as reputation, customers, references, and IP. All these 4 points were important as a foundation to set NODEUM in the storage landscape.
Making the most out of explosion of data and fulfilling the storage needs of enterprise customers
There is an unprecedented and exponential increase of volumes of data that need to be managed. And every new day poses new threats and challenges to customers who do not have the right tools as yet to tackle such situations safely, quickly, easily and cost effectively. This is where MT-C steps in with its unique offerings that allow its clients to use storage and archival systems that are easy to use, highly flexible, upgradeable and interoperable with the different environments that make up their IT architecture.
“You can’t solve exponential problems with linear solutions. Scaling linear solutions just increases complexity, costs and risks. So we have combined our vision with the decades of IP and know-how of MT-C to create NODEUM, the exponential solution”, said Valery. Indeed, by using the company’s technologies such as NODEUM, clients can actually reduce their investments and operating costs four-fold in comparison to traditional systems.
Having served some of the biggest giants in the healthcare/genetics space (using DNA sequencing machines such as IPG), spatial such as Lockheed Martin, broadcasting/postproduction, CCTV and also the financial and retail verticals, Valery is confident that there is nothing that can challenge MT-C’s journey towards excellence. “We have several large, world-leading companies using our machines in their demanding environments. And the enthusiasm with which they have been supporting us is what keeps us motivated in our quest for excellence to continually improve our unique technologies, designs, ease of operations, flexibility and economics,” he added.
MT-C recently launched NODEUM, a product that has been a huge commercial success. NODEUM is a Software Defined Storage that simplifies access to content in a transparent manner. The file catalog structures the storage of content efficiently and metadata makes the user’s search easy and fast. Besides, the data flow management system optimizes the storage of data in the most suitable format (Flash, Disk, Tapes).
Target Clientele of NODEUM
NODEUM targets vertical industries in America and Europe where data volumes are increasing exponentially.
Unique features of NODEUM
NODEUM is a SDS with a truly innovative design. It brings the experience of data and content management to a totally new level for IT managers and their end users.
“We have the technology and first commercial success. Now we are scaling the business fast and reinforcing the team at all levels to allow NODEUM to serve our target markets better.”
“We help, and have the trust of, companies with constantly changing needs for smart systems with high and explosive capacities of 100 TB+, e.g. biomedical and genetics research centers, cloud service providers, broadcasting and post-production, large-scale distribution and banks and insurance companies that need guaranteed and flawless protection for their data.”
