Sony Ships 400GB AIT-5 Products
Sony Electronics is now shipping its fifth generation of Advanced Intelligent Tape drives, automation solutions and data media to OEMs as well as commercial and OEM distribution channel partners.
With a compact 3.5-inch drive form-factor, AIT-5 technology is the industry’s first tape-based technology to offer up to 400GB of native capacity (up to 1.04TB with 2.6:1 compression based on the ALDC algorithm) in a single 8mm media cartridge.
AIT-5 drives are read and write backward compatible with standard read/write as well as WORM AIT-4, AIT-3Ex and AIT-3 media, so users can smoothly migrate to the higher capacity of AIT-5 storage solutions without losing access to, or compatibility with, data recorded on these prior generations of media. The 3.5-inch, half-height AIT-5 drive has a 96MB buffer to manage data throughput and minimize buffer overruns, and a sustained native transfer rate of up to 24MB/second that is optimized for the majority of Windows-based servers installed and shipping today.
For an added level of data protection, AIT-5 drives are multi-functional and support Write Once, Read Many capability when using AIT WORM media. Both standard read/write and WORM media cartridges are also now shipping to all channels.
Sony tested and certified compatibility of AIT-5 based products to ensure wide support and full interoperability with industry-leading backup and archival applications.
