Does anyone have an idea how close we are to burning 10+ GB onto a DVD and putting the disks into a jukebox on a machine running HP-UX?
We have a over 500 GB of mostly readonly image files and this would seem like an amazing cost savings for diaster recovery (at the very least).

When you consider that blank media for the above solution cost ~$30 each, you looking at a solution that would cost $2000 to $10000. Have you given any thought to a NAS solution? Your performance would be much better and I think your costs would be similar (or the NAS may cost less).

This data and its media would only be visited once a year during a disaster recovery test and then left to itself for another year (keeping a regular disk spinning or not for a year is a failure waiting to happen).
What I'm hearing here is the DVD route is far from cheap. It looks like more ideas are needed.
