AcceleRAIT Goes Western.

Western Scientific released the AcceleRAIT, a tape duplication machine capable of creating copies of AIT, DLT, 4mm DAT, and 8mm tapes. The duplication system was developed for large corporations and government institutions that need to create duplicate copies of tapes for internal distribution. This machine is beneficial when software needs to be upgraded throughout organizations. It was developed to assimilate into mid to high-end computer systems and connect to the host platform through a single device.

The system's data transfer rate allows the creation of five copies at a pass. The new products 5.25-inch inch module easily integrates into standard RAID enclosures and tape Library systems. The product offers arraying features similar to RAID striping, mirroring, and parity or drive redundancy.

"One of the AcceleRAIT's benefits is that it allows multiple copies to be made simultaneously without tying up the resources of a workstation," said Mike Powell, vice president of sales for Western Scientific.

Base system starts at $14,900.
