You probably want to think about your storage environment as much as the
media.  Additionally, if the data is important, keep at least 2 copies in
physically different locations.  Online storage + some form of media that is
routinely shuffled off to a safe deposit box or similar sound like good
ideas to me.

Just my 2 cents....
