Re: Ken Hallam's question about SCSI-to-SCSI tape type translators...
Yes, such a device is made by Ultera. It's a tape RAID controller,
but one feature is that it can pretend to be any of a small
list of tape drives. The fave thing to do is to lie to the host
and pretend to be a 9 track tape drive when what you really are is an array
of DLTs or Exabytes. This usually makes the host give the tape driver
a much higher priority to prevent costly tape underruns.
We sell this product, so if you need more info call me and I'm sure
we have some kind of junk mail laying around.
