Why the StorStation AIT260?
Any debate about AIT's superiority over competitive tape technologies should effectively disappear with the introduction of AIT-3. As the storage needs of most businesses continue to expand exponentially, only AIT-3 can offer a capacity to match in a 3.5 inch drive. Key technological advances have been incorporated to offer 100GB of native storage, as well as improving reliability and enabling a file access speed that is quicker than any other tape on the market.
Which makes AIT-3 the smallest, fastest and most reliable tape technology in its class- with a capacity of up to 260GB* per tape.
Added to which, AIT-3 drives are fully read and write compatible with AIT-2 and AIT-1 media, with a proven roadmap committed to doubling tape capacity with every generation. Meaning your business can never outgrow your backup technology, as long as it's AIT.
Suitable for?
Any data storage application which demands huge capacity and outstanding reliability
Any data storage application in which full read and write compatibility with previous generations of AIT is required
Key features and benefits
Up to 260GB* capacity in a compact 3.5" drive
Outstanding reliability at 400,000 hours MTBF (100% duty cycle)
Fastest access to data on the market, averaging <35 seconds
Outstanding performance, with 112 GB/h* backup rate
Low power consumption, meaning low heat generation
Full read and write compatibility with AIT-2 and AIT-1 media as standard
Enhanced data management with Sony's unique Remote-Memory-In-Cassette (R-MIC) interface system, utilising non-contact "smart-card" technology
Proven AIT roadmap, committed to doubling capacity every two years for six generations
* Assuming 2.6:1 compression (ALDC algorithm). Actual capacity and transfer rate depend on the type of data being transferred.
