From: Tape

There is a second type of tape drive from IBM based on the Magstar
technology.  Known as Coyote or 3570, it's 2.2 MB/sec., 5GB in a
two-reel cassette.  Unlike 3590, the tape never leaves the cassette.
The width of the tape is much less than 1/2", maybe 1/4"?  The
cassette is about the size of an 8mm, give or take.  There's an
associated desktop modular autochanger.  (rdv, 97/6/5)
