Simple is always better.
A different way of archiving
Maud will be present again at IBC 2018. You can find us at the Hub Brussels booth in hall 10, booth 10D43. We’d be glad to meet you there and show you what we’ve built.
Over the past year we’ve developed quite a few new features and upgrades which will be released after IBC. We’ve tested a gazillion different disks, improved speed with UAS support and new chipsets. Implemented FUSE / CIFS /AFP caching for faster browsing and access. We developed multi node 'store and retrieve' auto load balancing and implemented post-production workflows.
We’ve also done significant hardware updates, increased power efficiency and signal integrity. Developed better disk guiding and vibration control and we joined forces with Newtec, who's producing the third generation of PCB hardware which is faster and more resilient. Optional 10 Gbits is now also supported.
Meanwhile some of our clients passed the petabyte landmark on their Maud archive now and in total we've far surpassed 30 million archived files. So let’s be real, everybody who knows something about secure, long time archiving knows that this is another dimension we’re about to enter. Exciting, for sure!
So we’ll see what the future holds for us but in the meantime we’d like to thank our first clients for their patience and support and we’d like to convey our most profound and humble thanks to Concentra Group (Belgian Press group), Orfeo (French archiving company) and Mikros Image Group (International Post-production company) who stood by us over the past years. You all rock!
Maud is much more than a clever storage solution, it is a conscious choice and a way of life that stems from our belief that technology should make this world a better place.
That is why Maud-Technologies committed to developing the world’s first 100% transparent and environmentally responsible cloud-service archiving system: Everest.
In the coming months, Everest will see the light. It will run on Maud technology and will safeguard your archives while your archives keep the planet safe thanks to our policy of maintaining a carbon neutral footprint. If you’d like to know more about Everest keep an eye on www.myeverest.eu or drop us a mail. But for sure you’ll hear from us in the coming months.
At Maud Technologies we are grateful for what mother nature gave us. So instead of melting polar ice caps with overheated servers, we decided to invest in our planet's future and convert the ecological footprint that is created while archiving, into something much nicer.
We’ve decided to push some boundaries. Why not archive data and while doing so help transform the Sahel desert into a flowery meadow? Impossible? Well, apparently not… Over the past years we’ve compensated the ecological footprint of the chassis we’ve sold by planting trees in the region of Oursi where the first, huge Maud forest is now growing. Next year we’re looking at starting a similar project in Senegal.
Together with OZG (a noble non-profit organisation that fights desertification), Maud-Technologies committed to growing forests in the Sahel region, creating jobs, shady trees and luscious green grass for the locals and clean air for all of us. Isn’t that what we all need these days?
