I suggest a hybrid approach. Hard drives for operational backup and
tapes archive. I haven't used them myself but LTO tapes look attractive
for this (100/200 GB capacity). If not, then DAT or DLT, though this
will require multiple tapes to hold 100 GB.
In terms of archival lifetime, any reasonable format will be good for
five years -- if you're not concerned with preserving the data for
decades/centuries, your life gets a lot easier.
