Seagate will continue to offer its 20GB SCSI Travan
Network Series drives which offer enhanced features like hardware data compression and read-while-write data verification for servers, as well as its 20GB ATAPI interface drives for workstations.

drive may be higher than a CD-RW drive, for example, the cost of the media is comparable (one 20GB Travan
data cartridge has approximately the same amount of storage as 29 to 31 recordable CDs).
To date, Imation, Seagate, StorageTek, and Tandberg Data have all licensed VR2 technology for incorporation into their own linear products; Imation and Seagate for their Travan
products, Tandberg with its SLR line, and StorageTek with its high-performance 9840 product.
