Speed from DLT8000 to EMC

What is nominal tranfer rate for data between the DLT8000 tape drive and
EMC array?

The nominal transfer rate of the DLT8000 is 6.0 MB/s or 21.6 GB/hour (43.2 GB/hour compressed). I would hope that the EMC is faster than that and the DLT would be the limiting factor.

Do note that the nominal throughput is with the required-for-support dedicated SCSI interface for the DLT. If there's anything else on the SCSI bus, the throughput will go down the tubes.
