Comparison of Sony’s AIT 5 Tape Format with the Competing LTO3 Technology

By Rob Miller Subscribe to RSS | May 4th 2012 | Views:

Exploding volumes of operational data has become a headache for all types of businesses. This means massive capacity backup solutions required to ensure business continuity. The companies are also losing their data-center space, whereas the government regulations keep on intensifying these challenges. Tape storage technology that has really impressed the SMB (small & medium businesses) customers across the globe is the Sony’s extremely compact AIT technology. Its multiple generations have helped businesses to extend their operations, whereas the compatibility with previous AIT versions has made up-gradation highly cost-efficient.

Sony’s AIT5 solution is suitable for workstation backups, public organizations and supports the toughest needs of SMB customers. Sony SDX5-400C, AIT5 tape clearly stands apart with its unmatched compactness. It features approx. 1/3rd the physical size of its competitors. Uncompressed data storage capacity of AIT5 and LTO-3 media tape is 400GB. You will certainly be amazed to know that AIT5 cartridge’s base film is 40% shorter. So how come this small tape store greater amount of data? The answer is simple that it has been manufactured by the leading innovator, Sony. The recording density has been improved by introducing small ultra-fine cobalt particles. They are closely packed, and an additional protective layer has been applied to make it extremely robust.

I.T managers have choice of integrating AITi1040S (internal) or AITe1040SBK (external) AIT5 drives. Dust-protective bezels have been embedded in both these models, which enables consistent data streaming even if your IT environment is dusty or the conditions are harsh. AIT5 drives’ data compression capability is almost 60% higher than rival technologies, which usually double the capacity. But AIT 5 tape drives enhance the performance with a ratio of 2.6 to 1. That’s not all; MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) rating of AIT5 drives is also 150,000 hours higher than competing tape drives. That means the AIT5 drives not only deliver faster backup speed but also maintain highest level of reliability.

AIT5 drives shorten the backup time with their high speed of 24Mbps. So the data-rich companies can complete their data backups within an impressive time frame. AIT5 tape’s smooth base film enables the drive to speed up its performance, and the friction between R/W head and media tape also sharply reduces. After all this hard work of backing up data, you also need to safeguard it. A smart technology, known as W.O.R.M (write once, read many), features in this reliable backup system. So even if someone gets access to the backup tapes, the stored data can’t be tampered. Additionally, your data is also safeguarded against common operating errors like inadvertent over-writings. Now businesses have become more cautious regarding data security. That is why they prefer preservation of backup tapes at remote locations. In this way, they can use this data if the on-site data resources have been damaged by a disaster such as fire, flood etc. Sony AIT tapes meet your offsite storage needs as well.

AIT5 backup system provides unbeatable value for your investment, and empowers your business to achieve the tough data security objectives.
