Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the data-sheets can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by Sony: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

Marketing text Sony AIT-4 external SCSI

The official marketing text of Sony AIT-4 external SCSI as supplied by the manufacturer
The Sony StorStation AITi520S and AITe520SBK are the fourth generation of the AIT family and the smallest 200GB native capacity tape drives available with the same drive form factor as DDS. In addition, the AITi520S and AITe520SBK offer high performance, best storage density, highest reliability with 400,000 POH at 100% duty cycle and low cost per GB.
The WORM tape capabilities allows companies that require non-alterable media to gain up to a 20x cost advantage over other WORM optical and hard disk based technologies.
As with all Sony StorStation AIT drives the models come with HP ProLiant server installation kit (internal model only), compatibility testing and 3 year next business day swap warranty for easy integration.
StorStation drives are tested for compatibility with top selling HP, IBM, Dell and FSC Servers.
Suitable For
Medium-sized businesses that have outgrown their current storage system capabilities
Larger corporate with enterprise-class data protection needs.
HP Proliant, IBM, Dell, Fujitsu Siemens server environments, tested and certified with those servers for easy integration.

Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Characteristics of the device.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
Ultra 160 SCSI LVD/SE
Mean time between failures (MTBF)
Statistical model used to indicate product/mechanism reliability; expressed in hours and percentage of duty cycle. This number (in hours) does not indicate the mean time before failure for a single unit/mechanism.
400000 h
Native capacity*
Actual medium capacity without applying compression.
200 GB
Compressed capacity*
The maximum storage capacity of a storage medium when applying data compression. Usually measured in bytes e.g. gigabytes (GB). Sometimes the conditions are mentioned for reaching the maximum capacity mentioned, like tape length, the number of storage units, or the type of storage equipment/medium.
520 GB
Drive device, buffer size
A reserved segment of memory within a drive device that is used to hold the data being processed.
