Compaq DLT 35/70GB and SCSI adapter card

Compaq DLT 35/70GB and SCSI adapter card

Hi there,

I am new to the world of SCSI, and not to sure what I need. I have a Compaq 35/70GB DLT Drive and I need a SCSI adapter for a Proliant DL380 running Redhat 8 and I wondered what sort of card I need.
I am looking at an Adaptec AHA-2940AU which is a 32bit PCI to Ultra SCSI adapter with a throughput of 20Mb/s, is this suitable for my device??? Does this work under linux?
Anyone have any better alternatives?

Thanks in advance

2940 was one of the most used in the past years, it is supported for DLT35/70 as per this link:
