Does OpenVMS support an USB tape drive? (If so, is there a DDS4 USB or do we need AME or ATI or ...?)
If not, without a SCSI card on the thin DS15L do I need to install a video/SCSI combo card so that I can connect a tape drive to backup the AlphaServer?
I dislike backing up the disk to a save_set on disk (having to reserve disk space for its own save_set backup), network copy the save_set to another host node (needing to reserve space on the remote host node for another host's backup), then backup on the remote host node.
Thank you for your ideas.

AFAIK all the software for USB device are designed for wintel architecture so you can't use USB DAT on DS10 or DS15.

e.g KZPCM-DA network/scsi or DEPVZ-AA net/video/scsi card
Purely Personal Opinion

Probably, but the only supported devices are
probably on the current supported-devices
A trip through SYS$SYSTEM:SYS$CONFIG.DAT
might suggest some possibilities for
disk-like devices (DNDRIVER), but if there's
any support for tape, then I haven't noticed.

My hardware knowledge is confined mostly to
old junk. Is there modern hardware where an
add-in SCSI card is impossible?
