Why We Stand Out

Tetra makes a difference by delivering software that consistently exceeds the expectations of our customers. Our reputation is backed by a network of highly skilled engineers, allowing us to expand quickly and offer diverse opportunities difficult to find at other small companies. Government customers and corporate partners engage us to drive innovation using our unique expertise and talent. If you need proven talent that can deliver quality software solutions then Contact us now!

Tetra is the founding organization behind the Apache Spark Maryland meetup group. Spark is rapidly gaining traction as a next generation, in-memory computational framework for big data. Our data scientists and cloud engineers leverage Spark for Machine Learning and Graph processing. Please join us to learn more about this exciting new technology and to share experiences that are being used to solve real world problems.


Big Data Engineering

Tetra has data scientists and certified experts in Hadoop to build high-velocity data pipelines, flexible data models, and secure cross-domain collaboration. We specialize in cloud analytic development leveraging prediction, clustering, and similarity to produce actionable information across a wide variety of data types.

  • Hadoop (HDFS, Map/Reduce, Hive, Pig, YARN)
  • Spark, Blur, HBase, Accumulo, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, Solr
  • IBM Infoshpere Streams, Storm
  • Cloud Analytics (Geos, frequencies, network analysis)
High Performance Computing (HPC)

Tetra specializes in leveraging high performance computers (HPC) combined with big data to introduce innovative capabilities at a new level of scalability. Tetra has experience delivering large scale in-memory key/value stores, machine Learning, high throughput messaging, and massively parallel streaming analytics on HPC. We have experts skilled in ontological RDF modeling and scaling to the billions of nodes.

  • High speed streaming with IBM Infosphere and Apache Storm
  • Massive memory stores with Redis
  • High-throughput messaging with Kafka
  • IBM, Cray, SGI, FusionIO
Software Engineering

Software is at the heart of Tetra’s capabilities. Our engineers are passionate about the technology they create, and the quality of the their code. We believe in choosing the right set of tools for the mission and understand there is no one size fits all solution. This is a key distinguishing factor in the implementation of our core capabilities. We adapt to many types of messaging solutions, development frameworks, and application servers.

  • Java, Scala, Ruby, C/C++, Python
  • Kafka, TIBCO, ActiveMQ, RabbitMQ
  • Spring, Apache Camel, TIBCO Business Works
  • Tomcat, WebLogic, JBoss


To contribute to positive change and achieve our goals, Tetra partners with many first class engineering organizations throughout the DC Metropolitan area. It is our pleasure to introduce you to a handful of the organizations whose accomplishments and commitments are representative of all the organizations we are fortunate to call our partners.
