Hmm in this age of zillion gigabyte media files my box of 4.7 gb dvd's just don't cut it


Is there a reliable permanent storage solution other than Terra Byte hard drives  ?

Bluray discs... that's 50gb/disc

External disk-based hard drives configured in a RAID array (for resiliency rather than performance) is probably the best bet unless you have real "power user" needs.

CDs/DVDs/BluRay will degrade over time, they're far from permanent.

Your best bet is a SLA backed cloud service like BackBlaze. Although one backup is not a backup, it should be in at least three separate places.

1st three rules of computing...
Back up
Back up
Back up

I tend to have a external hdd, some sort of cloud back up and then something like cd/dvd/bluray.

When it comes to data redundancy is never a joke...
