Teradactyl provides data assurance for the leading computer science and artificial intelligence facilities in the world. We offer an Entry Level Enterprise Backup system in a turnkey appliance. Organizations that manage backup operations on premise trust Teradactyl®

.

Teradactyl hardware and software are integrated and tested in a high performance computing centers for years of durable performance and perpetual True incremental backup operations. TiBS PteroStor™ Edition & Aerie™ support your choice of client operating systems and specialty file systems. A wide array of storage subsystems can also be added. These can be staged rotational media, SSD, tape, or optical targets. Storage pools can be defined by client classes and groups or by time via a configurable level backup strategy.

Aerie™ appliances are simple to rack, power, and configure. TiBS PteroStor™ will quickly begin initial full network backups and then True incremental Backup. The Aerie™ 12 Clutch is available for all versions of the True incremental Backup System PteroStor™ edition. We recommend Lite or Full version deployment to eliminate the need for future network full backups. TiBS will take just the new and changed data from your systems. TIBS Lite & Full versions will synthetically create a new full backup volume entirely on the backup server at your specified scheduled intervals.

With TiBS PteroStor™ Edition, the new interface will make adding assets and storage easy. Our enhanced and very powerful search platform enables quick identification of systems, partitions, or files and lists the available restore point options. The new restore interface allows you to direct the data back to the asset or to another platform with clear reporting of unsupported ACL's or other potential conflicts. The PteroStor™ status and reporting console keeps you updated on all TiBS software, server, and storage sub-system operations. Teradactyl made an interface that is really simple to use even in large environments.
