Subject: Off -Line Storage of Archiver Data - Request for Information

Title: Message
Fellow EPICs Users,
 
At the Australian Synchrotron we are using Version 2.1.8 of the Channel Archiver on a machine with heaps (1.1 TB) of disk space.  The disk usage is currently at about 10% and rising after less than a year of operation.  We have an idea that we would like to back-up old data (maybe older than a year) to some form of off-line storage (e.g. DVDs, Tape, Paper Tape) which provides an easily accessible means of data retrieval (so it should contain the data along with all the necessary indexes and so on.)
 
I am interested to know if this sort of off-line storage is in use at other facilities and if so, what storage medium is in use and what sort of preprocessing of the data is used prior to writing to the storage medium.
 
Thanks in advance.
