The Tandberg DLT VS80 tape drive features DLT technologys first half-height, 5.25-inch form factor and offers 80 GB of compressed capacity and a 6 MBps compressed transfer rate. Now PC servers or workstations can be backed up on one single tape cartridge housed in the server itself. The Tandberg DLT VS80 provides a safe and easy transition into high-reliability tape technology because it offers true scalability. DLTtape IV media is the basis for making DLT scalability a reality. The quality and reliability of this media is so exceptional that the Tandberg DLT VS80 was developed specifically for DLTtape IV media. This media can be used in any DLT tape drive, plus its widely available, so finding it is never an issue. As an added benefit, the Tandberg DLT VS80 is read- and write-compatible with the DLT1 and read-compatible with the DLT4000. DLT scalability is now a reality from the desktop to the enterprise.
