    Deny's suggestion should meet your requirements.

    The DDS4 (better known as DAT40) offers faster performance than the
    DDS3 - albeit not as much faster on a 918 as on a faster system - and
    higher reliability.

    The pin converters as described by Denys will be required.

    You could also opt for a DAT72, but there are no real performance
    benefits over the DAT40, and you will be able to read and write one
    fewer generation of tapes than the DAT40.

    The LVD-SCSI DDS4 is capable of talking SE-SCSI AND we never tested this in
    the MPE lab with the NIO systems like the S918. Though DDS device firmware
    has been remarkably compatible across generations I do know of tweaks that
    were due to device behaviour differences through the years.

    DDS3 HP tested and HP supported with MPE
    DDS4 not HP tested and not HP supported with S918.

    It's your data.

    Of course in any case a sound stratagy for back-ups is required including
    but not limited to VSTOREs (and test RESTOREs) as well as good Media
    handling (device cleaning, media archive and replacment) procedures.
