Long-Term Storage of Moderately Large Datasets?

hawkeyeMI writes “I have a small scientific services company, and we end up generating fairly large datasets (2-3 TB) for each customer. We don’t have to ship all of that, but we do need to keep some compressed archives. The best I can come up with right now is to buy some large hard drives, use software RAID in linux to make a RAID5 set out of them, and store them in a safe deposit box. I feel like there must be a better way for a small business, but despite some research into Blu-ray, I’ve not been able to find a good, cost-effective alternative. A tape library would be impractical at the present time. What do you recommend?”
