  Tape drive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tape drive, also known as a streamer, is a peripheral device that reads and writes data stored on a magnetic tape or a punched tape.
Tape drive storage is usually referred to with the assumption of 2:1 compression; the raw storage capacity is known as the native capacity.
In the 1980s some forms of tape drives were used as inexpensive alternatives to disk drives, examples include the ZX Microdrive and Rotronics Wafadrive.

 Digital Linear Tape - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Digital Linear Tape (DLT) is considered a de facto standard for magnetic tape technology used for computer data storage.
The cartridges contain a single reel and the tape is pulled out of the cartridge by means of a leader tape attached to the takeup reel inside the drive.
Tape speed and tension are controlled electronically via the reel motors; there is no capstan.

 Digital Linear Tape - Today's New Media - Is It Better?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Digital Linear Tape (DLT) systems have been available since 1985, but recent increases in both speed and capacity have given the technology a new lease on life.
It incorporates the ability to read older tapes, although it cannot write to them, which means it would probably be most useful in allowing organizations to maintain their present archives in a useable form.
Where users have thousands of tapes in their libraries, there can be a considerable saving in time and money if older tapes don't have to be re-recorded on to newer ones.

 Digital Linear Tape - DLT
Short for Digital Linear Tape, DLT is a technology initially developed by Digital who later sold the technology to Quantum.
DLT helps address storage capacity and access time when backing up information to tape drives by increasing the total capacity and speed of the tape drive and disks.
SDLT, or Super Digital Linear Tape, is a variant of DLT that was developed later and increased the overall capacity, doubling the capacity of disks and allowing up to 300GB to be stored.

 DLT - Digital Linear Tape
Chosen for mission critical systems in U.S. government agencies and the financial industry, DLT tape drives are widely used for rapid backup of network server and workstation data.
Also contributing to long life are the DLT drive's sophisticated tape tension servo control system and the low-contact head guide assembly's gentle tape path in which only the back of the tape touches the guide rollers.
The DLT tape family uses half-inch MP (metal particle) tape in a space-saving single-reel cartridge, offering a unique combination of extremely high capacity (up to 70GB compressed), high speed (up to 10GB/s compressed), high reliability (over 1,000,000 passes), and rapid file access.
