I’d like to know where and for how much I can get blank Blu-ray media ?
I have a huge quantity of data to backup that will not, (except in the event of a crash) need to be read again
I plan to build a small disc feeding robot to multiple optical disc burner (dvd or Blue-ray whichever ends up cheaper in the long run (we are talking 10 terabyte))
the cheapest mass storage I could find is 0.042$ per GB
hard drives are about 0.28$ per GB
the best I could find was in the 8$ or 9$ range so about 0.34$ per GB for something a lot less convenient or compact than hard drives
tapes are still in the crazy dollar per GB range with 1000$+ drives and slow slow speeds
am I right to think that, at this moment, the cheapest per GB backup solution is DVD*R ?
