Ultrium 1 and DAT 4 drives

Short question:
What is the lifecycle of DDS4 20/40GB and Ultrium 1 100/200GB tapes in number of usages?
We are using Ultrium SureStore 215 drives and DAT4 drives in our system for backup. Backup is going on daily basis.
How many times (estimated) can they be used?
Thanks.
Dejan.
