The official marketing text of Sony StorStation AITe390SBK drives as supplied by the manufacturer
Once you make a decision to use a tape technology, you need to be sure that your investment will be protected in the future with backwards compatibility of older media in new drives. AIT-3Ex is the perfect upgrade drive for any current AIT user! With backwards compatibility with all of the lower capacity generations of AIT (including the Turbo media), you can take confidence that your older tapes can be used as needed.
However, if you want to get the maximum benefit from AIT-3Ex, then start using the 150GB media and gain the high 18MB/s performance that the drive can offer. AIT-3Ex has been designed with past, but also future in mind. Not only will today’s AIT-4 drive support the new AIT-3Ex media , but also the forthcoming AIT-5 drives too.
As with all Sony StorStation AIT drives the models come with a hp Proliant server installation kit (internal model only), a bundled backup software package and 3 year Rapid Replacement warranty. The drives are equipped with a dust-protective bezel that ensures the reliability in harsh environments and are tested for compatibility with major vendor servers from hp, IBM, Dell and Fujitsu-Siemens.

Characteristics of the device.
Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
Ultra 160 SCSI LVD/SE
Mean time between failures (MTBF)
Statistical model used to indicate product/mechanism reliability; expressed in hours and percentage of duty cycle. This number (in hours) does not indicate the mean time before failure for a single unit/mechanism.
400000 h
Native capacity*
Actual medium capacity without applying compression.
150 GB
Compressed capacity*
The maximum storage capacity of a storage medium when applying data compression. Usually measured in bytes e.g. gigabytes (GB). Sometimes the conditions are mentioned for reaching the maximum capacity mentioned, like tape length, the number of storage units, or the type of storage equipment/medium.
390 GB
Drive device, buffer size
A reserved segment of memory within a drive device that is used to hold the data being processed.
