format, while physically larger than the DAT and DLT, holds less data.
is a highly durable storage format that uses high-capacity cartridges, making it a great option for notebook backup and storage.

In linear drives the basic recording technique is similar between Travan
, SLR, SC50, VS, DLT, and LTO drives (there are variations in recording density/encoding, track pitch, and number of parallel channels).
If higher capacity is needed, then Travan
offers a backup solution with over 29 times that of CD-RLRW and three to nine times that of DVD at an attractive price.
