AIT Drive 100-260GB ext SCSI AIT3 3.5"
Sony AIT Drive 100-260GB ext SCSI AIT3 3.5" 100GB tape drive
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.
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
