    If you Google 'long term data storage' you'll get more opinions than
you can possibly read. IMHO your writer is taking the worst case
scenario and making it sound as if it is typical. Phthalocyanine dye
disks with gold reflective backing have a mfr life expectancy in cold
storage of 200 years. Cyanine dye disks on silver are the worst. And so
on. I sounds to me like he is trying to sell commercial tape backup to
big customers.
