Techopedia Explains TravanTravan magnetic tape storage uses a linear track technology that writes data onto individual tracks over several successive passes. Fully reading or writing a Travan tape requires moving the tape from reel to reel many times because of the need for successive read/write passes. But unlike competing technologies like Digital Linear Tape (DLT) and Linear Tape Open (LTO), Travan does not automatically verify the data after being written; instead, it requires a separate verification process done by the operator. If data verification is not performed after each backup, it is possible that the backups may have been corrupt and unusable from the very beginning and the problem was not detected.
