DLT is a quite expensive way to backup, especially considering the price
of the tapes (50-100 euros). Depending on how many backups and how much
data you want to keep around it might be interesting to look at other
(External harddrives, dvd, maybe blue-ray next year). Since harddrives
run at about 100 euro's for 200 GB it's quite hard to beat those prices.

So far I've only seen SCSI versions, I'd think SATA is still quite far
off for DLT (as there aren't even many cd/dvd drives on sata yet)
