TravanAn earlier backup tape technology from Imation Corporation, Oakdale, MN (www.imation.com). Travan drives evolved from QIC tapes and were mostly compatible with QIC cartridges. However, Travan used .315" wide tape rather than quarter inch (the QI in QIC), as well as different tape guides and enhanced magnetic media. For server backup, the Travan Network Series (NS) provided hardware compression and read-while-write features. See QIC and magnetic tape.
