DDS-4 tape cartridge delivers reliable performance for unattended backups. At 150m, DDS-4 tape is longer than DDS-3 (125m), holding two-thirds more data. Use with HP SureStore DAT and non-HP brand DAT tape drives. Cartridge is electronically tested to withstand a minimum of 2,000 passes or 100 full backups. Tape cartridge offers 40GB compressed capacity, 10 years of archival life and a lower cost of ownership compared with AIT and DLT vs. technologies.
Works with linux
This review is from: HP C5718A 20/40GB DDS-4 Tape Media 1 Pack
Pros: Surprised to find this USB tape drive worked so well with linux (CentOS). The included cable was long enough to reach the USB headers even in a large file server case.
Cons: No software with it but the built-in tar and related utilities access it just fine.
