Secure Your Enterprise Workgroups and Business-Critical Systems with Sony AIT 5 Tape Solution

By Rob Miller Subscribe to RSS | May 25th 2012 | Views:

Organizations have to strictly comply with the increasing government & industry legislations. Public organizations and business enterprises are faced with the tough challenge of preserving and securing organizational data for longer time periods. The result is meteoric rise in backup storage systems’ demand. Backup storage systems are not only being installed by the businesses for the satisfaction of these legislations, but are also important for their own organizational sustainability.

Due to limited space and slim budgets, small & mid-sized companies can’t afford the expensive, bulky backup systems. Sony, having more than 5 decades of technical experience in tape recording, came up with the most economical and space efficient Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) technology. AIT tapes are very small and can be easily carried in shirt pocket. Its roadmap has been extended to AIT 5 generation. The multiple AIT versions better serve your current and future needs, while delivering a cost efficient AIT solution for different budgets.

The ideal environments for AIT5 system are mid-sized companies, rapidly-growing businesses and small IT centers. This AIT5 solution beats other tape-based systems in terms of space-efficiency and data compressing capability. AIT5 tape’s physical size has been intelligently reduced by Sony, which is almost 65-66% smaller than majority of the tapes designed for SMB industry. As compared to rival tape systems, AIT5 users can preserve high volume backups by utilizing only one third of their shelf space.

Two models of AIT5 media tapes have been developed. WORM (write once, read many) technology has been embedded in SDX5-400W tape. The other standard rewritable tape is SDX5-400C. Both these tape models have the same capacity.

AIT5 tape cartridge reliably packs enormous amount of 400GB raw data. The most attractive feature of this tape is that its capacity boosts to 1040GB after compression.

Strictly-controlled media coating process has extended the useful life of Sony’s AIT5 tape to 30,000 passes.

Just like the AIT5 tape cartridges, Sony has also designed two super-fast models of AIT5 drives that work excellently in data-intensive IT centers. AITe1040SBK is the AIT5 external drive, and the internal model is AITi1040S. Their design architecture is 5.25-inch form factor. So they can be conveniently integrated to the midrange networks and enterprise workgroups. Their performance is not affected by the pollutants and airborne contaminants, as they feature special dust-protective bezels. This innovative feature helps to extend its working life while reducing the tape wear-and-tear as well.

Sony is dedicated to providing high-quality backup devices for the organizations’ specific long term data security needs. In addition to AIT format, Sony’s popular tape family for SMBs is DDS (Digital Data Storage). Part numbers of its best selling DDS tapes are DGDAT160 (DDS-6), DGDAT72 (DDS-5), DGD125PWW (DDS-3), DGD120P (DDS-2) and DGD90P (DDS-1).

Business enterprises operating AIT4 and AIT3 systems will have to make minimal investment for up-gradation. The reason backward write and read compatibility of AIT 5 drives. So the data assets that have been backed up on these previous AIT media tapes can be utilized with this new AIT5 system.
