Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of IBM DDS Gen 5 36/72GB Internal Back -Up Internal DDS 36GB tape drive as supplied by the manufacturer
This DDS Generation-5 tape drive option brings performance and capacity in a 5.25-inch, half-high form factor to low and midrange IBM eServer xSeries servers. This reliable tape drive unit supports Ultra2 low-voltage differential (LVD) SCSI connections and high-speed tape backup. This single drive tape can store up to 36GB native capacity and up to 72GB compressed. Tape drives that use data compression technology have storage capacity that will vary depending upon whether the drive is operating in native mode (without compression) or compressed mode. Although the compression technology used in IBM tape drives can typically double the amount of data stored on the media, the actual degree of compression achieved is highly sensitive to the characteristics of the data being compressed.

Characteristics of the device.
Compression ratio*
The ratio between the uncompressed file size and compressed size. Thus a representation that compresses a 10MB file to 2MB has a compression ratio of 10/2 = 5, often notated as an explicit ratio, 5:1 (read "five" to "one"), or as an implicit ratio, 5/1.
Interface ports to connect pieces of equipment. USB (Universal Serial Bus) has become the most popular wired interface to connect peripherals. USB 2.0 supports speeds up to 480 Mbit/s (USB 1: 12 Mbit/s). The interface FireWire is also known as the IEEE 1394 standard. Enhanced IDE (EIDE)is sometimes referred to as Fast ATA, Fast IDE or ATA-2.
Native capacity*
Actual medium capacity without applying compression.
36 GB
Compressed capacity*
The maximum storage capacity of a storage medium when applying data compression. Usually measured in bytes e.g. gigabytes (GB). Sometimes the conditions are mentioned for reaching the maximum capacity mentioned, like tape length, the number of storage units, or the type of storage equipment/medium.
