Enterprise Backup Infrastructure for Unstructured & Unique Data

Join The Flight To Quality

Welcome to the Teradactyl LLC. Company Information Page

Teradactyl LLC. is a high technology storage company dedicated to enterprise backup infrastructure. We manufacture the True incremental Backup System®, Aerie™ & cLuster Guard™ purpose built backup appliances, and Teradactyl® integrated Direct Attached Storage (TiDAS™) enterprise JBOD storage arrays. In addition, we provide robotic tape library and robotic optical library systems from Spectra Logic Corporation and Sony Corporation respectively. Teradactyl® enterprise services engages in a wide array of engineering services including project design, custom engineering, compatibility testing, OnSite integration, installation, configuration, and training. Support services for software and hardware are offered for a variety of service levels and are provided with U.S. based employees.

Teradactyl® is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company was founded January 1999 to provide enterprise backup infrastructure for highly complex heterogeneous computing environments generating unstructured data sets with low levels of commonality. These facilities also tend to frequently deploy specialty file systems for high performance computing & wide area networks. Patented TeraMerge™ technology integrates new and changed data with information previously transferred to the backup system to generate new full backup volumes and a configurable range of intermediate backup volumes. This process is known as synthetic backup consolidation and significantly reduces the impact of backup operations on the networks and the computing assets. Appropriate design and management of synthetic backup levels and configurable backup subsystem pools provides control over granularity of data, provisioning of tiered storage resources, retention periods for classes and groups of intellectual property, and ultimately storage consumption. We provide unique solutions for enterprise backup infrastructure to leading commercial, education, government, and high performance computing organizations.

Teradactyl is 100% U.S. owned and operated in a privately held Limited Liability Company. We service clients primarily in North America and the European Union. Teradactyl primarily sells direct to large institutional customers but also works with prime contractors, integrators, and select value added resellers. Additional information on our products and services, including a statement of capabilities, can be found in our Knowledge Base.

Teradactyl specializes in the development of enterprise network backup system software for high performance computing, research, scientific, and other environments that generate data sets with relatively little commonality. The True incremental Backup System consolidates new or changed data with information already in the backup system enabling perpetual True incremental Backup with fast single pass restores. Specialty file system solutions for platforms such as AFS, Lustre, L-Store, and GPFS.
