As a follow up to a question that was posted last September, Are there any
written standards for using DVD as a long term storage medium? What is the
life span of a DVD? Is CD preferred over DVD as a long-term storage medium?
Question posed on 9/2002:
The question has been raised to our RIM Department of the possibility of
storing data/records on DVD's for long term archival. We have not used
DVD's in the past. My question is...is this a proper storage medium? Has
anyone started using DVD's for archival? Are there any anticipated issues
of using DVD vs. CD? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
