At its 100GB capacity, AIT
tapes are comparable to S-DLT 110GB and LTO 100GB models, but at just one-third the size.
technology uses a half-inch, single-reel cartridge and provides up to five times the capacity of current AIT
and linear tape formats.
Drives capable of medium to high duty cycle applications include DLT, SDLT, AIT
, Mammoth, LTO Ultrium, 9840, and Magstar.
So why haven't IT departments everywhere rushed to use AIT
media to cut their active data management costs down to size?
technology combines advances in read/write head design, tape handling, error correction, and media construction to improve reliability and lower costs.
-2 drives also claim full read/write compatibility with AIT
The new technology provides throughput over previous generation AIT
