Tandberg ships SLR6
Late last month, Tandberg Data introduced a 12GB (native) single-channel linear recording (SLR) tape drive for network, workstation, and midrange computing applications. Tandberg is positioning the drive to compete against DDS-3 (digital data storage). The drive features a 16-bit Fast Wide SCSI-2 interface and TapeAlert diagnostic software, and is available in internal and external configurations. SLR6 is backward compatible with SLR4 models and scalable up to MLR3. Pricing starts at $1,023.
