With the release of this 5th generation, the Sony AIT format has reached its 10-year anniversary.
AIT-5 achieves the original Sony goal to introduce a new generation every 2 years; ensuring AIT is one of the only tape formats in the industry that has delivered against its published roadmap.
AIT offers the markets widest range of data capacities in a single format, with the new AIT-5 delivering a massive 400GB native capacity at 24MB/s native transfer speed. With read & write backwards compatibility with AIT-3, AIT-3Ex and AIT-4 generations, AIT-5 is the ideal drive for the current AIT user with fast growing data storage needs. And through the use of Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) media, AIT-5 also helps facilitate compliance with European data retention regulations too.
As with all Sony StorStation AIT drives, the models come with a hp Proliant server installation kit (internal model only), a bundled backup software package and 3 year Rapid Replacement warranty. The drives are equipped with a dust-protective bezel that ensures the reliability in harsh environments and are tested for compatibility with major vendor servers from hp, IBM, Dell and Fujitsu-Siemens.

Characteristics of the device.
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.
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.
