  The AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape) technology
The AIT format was one of the few new mid-range tape technologies introduced to address, not only a new position in capacity and performance, but also access to data.
The high data search rates are achieved through the assistance of MIC technology, which provides greater intelligence to a tape drive and media combination through the use of an "auxiliary" flash memory chip incorporated into the data cassette.
AIT-3 is the third generation AIT technology implementation, doubling the capacity and performance of the prior generation.

 AIT - Advanced Intelligent Tape
advanced intelligent tape; a helical scan technology developed by Sony for tape backup/archive of networks and servers, specifically addressing midrange to high-end backup requirements.
AIT drives and media achieve a native capacity of 25GB (up to a maximum of 50GB with compression).
Advanced Intelligent Tape, this a Sony magnetic tape using the 8mm cassette standard, these cassettes can hold up to 100GB.

 Audi Ingolstadt goes for Grau Data Storage's INFINISTORE Library featuring Sony's Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) is a new industry standard mid-range tape storage format from Sony.
Tape drives were subjected to a two-month stress test in the Audi Computer Centre, in a test configuration comprising an INFINISTORE robot with four AIT-2 drives and AIT-1 media on a SUN E450 storage server and using SAM-FS software.
Tapes and drives even sailed through the third test, in which Tests 1 and 2 were combined with a media change after every read/write operation and around 5,500 mounts were carried out per drive over a one-week period.

Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) was the first multi-sourced tape standard targeted at the midrange server market, which is typically characterised by systems that support 2 to 129 users in a commercial environment.
AIT was designed to support this key market segment with a combination of high data integrity, speed and capacity.
SONY are now the main supplier of AIT drives and the original 8mm media used in the AIT-1, -2 and -3 models has been replaced by 1/2" media in the new Super AIT range.

One of the latest developments in tape technology — which is all new — is called LTO (Linear Tape Open) also known as Ultrium tape.
One of the evident attributes of backups that has caused tape wear, performance issues and inefficient use of tape is the inability of a host or server to provide data to the tape drive in a continuous stream.
LTO has introduced Adaptive Tape Speed to ensure the tape operates at the most appropriate data rate of the host, matching tape speed to the amount of data in the drive's buffer.

 AIT Technology: Frequently Asked Questions
Advanced Intelligent Tape™ (AIT) is an established standard in the tape drive industry.
Unlike conventional tape drives that must rewind to the beginning of the tape to read the system log and find the desired file, the MIC chip provides sophisticated data access, decreasing file access times up to 50 percent.
To ensure the tape is held firmly against the head assembly, tape tension must be enough to produce accurate read-write responses yet minimize head wear and buildup from tape debris.

Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) is the first multisourced tape standard targeted at the midrange server market, which is typically characterised by systems that support 2 to 129 users in a commercial environment.
AIT was designed to support this key market segment with a combination of exceptional data integrity, speed and capacity.
Read while write detects and corrects any write anomalies by rewriting the data after the dropout area of the tape has passed, that is, "on-the-fly." ECC, which was developed by the aerospace industry, is a process of mathematically describing data so that it can be reconstructed if lost.

 AIT Tape Drives - For Backup / Storage
AIT is a fast access, high-density tape recording technology used mainly for unattended data backup but can also be used for image/multimedia storage and retrieval, real-time data acquisition, transportable storage, and storage management applications.
Longer Life Cycle - AIT has a much longer life cycle than other tape formats because of its extremely low and carefully controlled tape tension.
The high compression specifications for capacity and performance of the AIT family are achieved through the incorporation of the Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ALDC) technology, which delivers an average 2.6 to 1 compression ratio.
