The IBM 7208 Model 342 20GB External 8mm Tape Drive is a stand-alone, SCSI, 8mm streaming tape drive packaged in a black enclosure that attaches to the AS/400 family of servers and systems. It provides a media capacity of 20 GB (40 GB with 2:1 compression) data storage per cartridge and a sustained data rate of 3.0 MB per second (6.0 MB per second with 2:1 compression). This is four times the capacity and six times the data rate of the IBM 7208 Model 012. The 7208 Model 342 features data compression hardware using an adaptation of IBM’s Improved Data Recording Capability (IDRC) algorithm.
