January 14, 2008, Yorktown, Virginia – Cybernetics has announced the immediate availability of premium quality AIT-5 tape media with 400 GB native capacity, up to 800 GB compressed capacity. AIT tape backup has been extremely popular with Cybernetics customers since its introduction in 1996. Exceptional reliability has always been one of the best features of AIT, which has the highest reliability rating and lowest annualized failure rates in the tape backup industry. This new premium grade media further enhances the solid reliability of data stored on AIT tape media.
Tape remains the most cost efficient and secure medium for long-term storage of archival data. AIT tapes are constructed with a "Diamond Like Carbon" coating for strength and durability. AIT tapes are rated for 30,000 tape passes and a shelf life of 30 years. The new premium grade AIT-5 tape media is the safest possible means to store your important archival data for years and years to come.
AIT-5 is available in a variety of configurations, including Cybernetics miSAN® all-in-one, disk-to-disk-to-tape solutions. As part of the miSAN®, AIT-5 is a removable tape drive module complete with an easy-swap carrier that simply plugs into the small 2U virtual tape library unit. Data is first written to disk at maximum speed, then selected backup files are archived to premium grade removable media in a completely serverless mode. Optional data encryption protects data from surreptitious activity even after it has been transported to off-site locations. The miSAN® VTL with AIT-5 tape archives protect data from every kind of threat.
The new AIT-5 premium grade tapes are available immediately online or by phone. Contact Annamarie Foyles at 757-833-9000 for more information.
