Aerie™ 24 Clutch Backup Appliance

Aerie™ 24 Clutch – Large Department Backup Appliance

Overview

Teradactyl® makes complex large department backup of heterogeneous environments easy to protect with a simple 4U rack mounted appliance. Operating systems, file systems, and network attached storage are all processed by a single application in a purpose built backup appliance designed for big data applications.

Teradactyl® hardware and software integrated and tested in a high performance computing center 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 be added for staged rotational media, SSD, tape, and 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 and will quickly begin initial full network backups. The Aerie™ 24Clutch is available for all versions of the True incremental Backup System PteroStor™ edition. We recommend Lite or Full version deployment that eliminate the need for future network full backups. TiBS will take just the new and changed data from your systems and synthetically create a new full backup volume entirely on the backup server at scheduled intervals.

Aerie™ is easy to expand with options for Teradactyl integrated Direct Attached Storage (TiDAS™), tape library support for virtually any manufacturer & technology, and even optical storage solutions that are stable in challenging environmental conditions. All Aerie™ lines include IPMI 2.0 subsystem that provides management and monitoring capabilities independently of the host system's CPU, firmware (BIOS or UEFI) and operating system.

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.
