Spectra Logic adds AIT library
Based on Sony`s Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) technology, Spectra Logic this month introduced the oddly-named TreeFrog entry-level tape library. (Spectra Logic also sells Travan-based tape libraries under the TreeFrog name.) Capacity: 375GB (native) in an 8.5-inch high rack-mountable enclosure. With dual drives, the TreeFrog provides a native data transfer rate of 6MBps. Spectra Logic claims an average 2.6:1 compression ratio using the ALDC algorithm. A single-drive TreeFrog configuration is priced at $6,500.
