we have an 3590E tape station and I'm wondering about the capacity of the
cartridges. Is it possible that the blue cartridge
(for 3590B) takes about 100GB of data (compression/compaction activated)?

If I read the the data sheet correctly, the blue cartridge should fit 20GB
on a 3590E (w/o compress). Thats an impressive
compression factor (100GB on a 20GB cartridge).

When do I get the full data rate (27Mb/sec)? Only with the green tapes? Our
IOP card is a 2749.
