Digital Data Storage (DDS, DDS-1, DDS-2, DDS-3, DDS-4)

Digital Data Storage (DDS) is a set of standards developed by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) for the storage of digital data on magnetic tape. There are four generations of DDS standards, DDS-1 through DDS-4, with each successive generation offering higher capacity and performance than the previous one. DDS drives are commonly used for backup and archival purposes, as they offer a low cost per gigabyte of storage and are very reliable.
