Sony Electronics is now shipping its fourth-generation Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT-4) drives and data media in volume through the reseller channel. Based on a compact 3.5-inch drive form factor using 8mm recording media, AIT-4 offers 200 GB of native storage capacity (520GB with 2.6: 1 compression) and a native data transfer rate of 24MB/second. AIT-4 media features an areal density of 1.17Gb/inch2, which is greater than any other magnetic tape media in the world. This remarkable areal density was achieved through a new tape formulation process, dubbed Advanced Metal Evaporated II (AME II). With volume shipments of AIT-4, Alan Sund, marketing director for tape storage solutions in Sony Electronics' Component and Business Solutions Division said that Sony is the only tape storage company to ship a total of four generations of drives and media within the same format simultaneously.
