You could also look at SDLT.
I just saw a Quantum VS160 should do what you need, and reasonably priced
Native capacity of 80GB at 8MB/second transfer rate
2:1 compression allows for 160GB capacity at 16MB/second transfer rate
Half-high, 5.25-inch form factor, low power, server-ready design
Read compatible with the DLT1, DLT VS80
Uses DLTtape VS1 media cartridges
