Tape Hardware Suggestions

Hi,

On my project list for next year is adding an air-gapped backup to my Nakivo solution. I'm looking for a low cost tape drive compatible with Nakivo but my usual vendors don't have much selection and everything I've found on the internet is rather out of date. Does anyone have a good solution for a low cost tape drive? I don't have a lot of capacity needs so I could probably get away with DLO-5. I'm looking into cloud backup as well but would rather keep the data on prem. I'm hoping to add a drive to a desktop, poweredge server or cheap NAS.

Thanks!
