What's the best media for archiving

I was curious what the best type of media is for archiving, more specifically how long it will last. DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD RAM, those DVD DL discs, etc. I’ve really only used the first two. Thanks for any responses.

Also, are there other types of storage media that last longer than optical, for example flash drives.

well lto ultrium tapes are very reliable , but the drive itself is quite expensive
