The official marketing text of Sony AIT Drive 100-260GB int SCSI AIT3 3.5" as supplied by the manufacturer
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. 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.
