  • Operating cost with IBM 18P7912 media and the intelligent DAT72 drives reduces as they support other tape generations.
  • Raw 36 GB capacity is unmatched as compared to data tapes with similar physical architecture and size.
  • Compressed mode of the drives facilitates data administrators to save 72GB.
