Disc Makers (Pennsauken, N.J.) has launched its new line of SDLT and AIT tape backup systems: the Eagle and Hawk.

The Eagle8 is an eight-cartridge, high-capacity automated tape backup system featuring the SDLT 320 internal tape drive mechanism by Quantum. This ensures compatibility with an installed base of DLT-format backup systems. Suited for either a data center rack-mount configuration or a desktop environment, the Eagle8 is a 2U rackmount configuration and offers a transfer rate of 16 MB per second (native).

The Hawk AIT series external tape system features AIT mechanism by Sony, a plug-and-play USB 2.0 interface and can be configured in two formats: AIT-1 (35GB native/90GB compressed capacity) or AIT-2 (50GB native/125GB compressed capacity). The system is designed to be fully compatible with future-generation models.

The Hawk8 AIT series can be configured as AIT-1 (280GB native/728GB compressed capacity), AIT-2 (400GB native/1TB compressed capacity) or AIT-3 (800GB native/2TB compressed capacity).

All of the systems come with a one-year warranty and free lifetime tech support. For more, visit www.discmakers.com/duplicators/storage.html.
