DVDs are not a reasonable alternative in my view either. The numbers get silly quickly. That's why I am planning on online storage. It gives me automatic geographical separation and their own backup of my data is also geographically separate plus multiple copies on that end as well. I still keep local backups on the backup server and the original data is on RAID 5. There are DVDs in the mix but only for bare metal restores where I need to get my base system running from scratch and then reload the data from either the backup server, or from online service. It makes sense to me, but I am always open to suggestions.
