Of particular note are the Archive DDS tape drives produced for Silicon Graphics that could also read and write Digital Audio Tapes.

Prior to this, Archive was a leading vendor of the very popular QIC (Quarter-inch cartridge) format which was a popular distribution format for UNIX workstations and servers. For example, Sun-3 (Motorola 68k family) and Sun-4 (SPARC) software was most commonly distributed on QIC media before the CD-ROM became more cost-effective. Archive was probably better known for their QIC drives.
