File management systems of today’s business enterprises must ensure fast access to immense quantities of diverse corporate data, all with a higher level of reliability. Enormous data growth and tough business requirements have increased the demand for new cost-effective and high capacity backup solutions.

The intelligent answer for the exploding needs of small and mid-range businesses is the AIT tape format. This powerful and superior backup tape technology was developed by Sony in 1996. Sony AIT tape solution is the best option for transportable storage applications, government agencies, midrange storage management, workgroups, public organizations and unattended backups. Sony AIT tape technology offers fastest files access, greatest data throughput rates, high speed media loads and largest storage capacity than any other mid-range tape media format. Sony AIT tape technology is highly scalable that grows with your increasing business needs, which allows the companies to rely on a single tape format.

Sony AIT-4 backup tape is almost 37 percent the size of rival tapes of equivalent capacity. Native data transfer speed offered by Sony AIT4 drives reaches up to 24MB/s.

Sony SDX4200WWW, AIT4 cartridge features WORM technology, and SDX4200C is a non-WORM AIT4 tape cartridge. Once the information is saved on the AIT-4 WORM tape, it cannot be altered or erased. This powerful feature secures your critical information against corruption and accidental over-writings.
