DLT

From Wikipedia

DLT (Digital Linear Tape) is a magnetic tape data storage technology developed in 1984 and purchased by the Quantum Corporation in 1994. A higher capacity variant called Super DLT supports hardware data compression. Its stated compression factor of 2:1 is generally only achievable for text data; a more realistic factor is 1.3:1 to 1.5:1.

DLT media are guaranteed for 30 years of data retention under specified environmental conditions and careful handling. Quantum stopped development of DLT in February 2007 to focus on the LTO format.
