DDS-6 Tape

More commonly known as the DAT 160, this generation of DDS Tape was launched in 2007 by HP and has a few changes from the previous generations. The storage capacity has been enhanced to 80 GB and of course with a compression ratio of 2:1, the total storage capacity of this backup tape is increased to 160 GB. The DDS-6 Tape uses a larger width of tape namely 8 mm. The data transfer rate for this device is an increased 6.9 MB/s thus offering quick data transfer to and from the tape. The size of the tape is increased, with the width being 8 mm instead of the usual 3.8 mm as was the case in previous generations. The head tape contact has been increased to 180 degrees instead of 90 degrees as was common in previous generations.
