DAT DDS tape Drive Units available from selected Manufacturers
DAT72 stores up to 36 GB uncompressed (72 GB compressed) on a 170 meter cartridge. The DAT 72 standard was developed by HP and Certance. It has the same form-factor and is backwards compatible with DDS-3 and -4.
DAT 160 was launched in June 2007 by HP. A major change from the previous generations is the width of the tape. DAT 160 uses 8 mm wide tape while all prior versions use 3.81 mm wide tape. Despite the difference in tape widths, DAT 160 drives are backwards compatible with DAT 72 and DAT 40 (DDS-4). Native capacity is 80GB and native transfer rate 6.9MB/s. Launch interfaces are SCSI and USB.
Both DAT72 and DAT160 drives available from Quantum, HP and Tandberg.
