What do you use for backup of your 2k files?

HD-Video and movies recorded in 2k or 4k are a lot of Data. How do you back it up? On tape or on blueray-disk, or on xxx-secret-technologie-that-i-still-don't-know?

I'm just getting in to the HD game, and bought a reconditioned LTO Ultrium-2 tape drive. So far, so good. I would have bought a new tape drive, but since they're aimed a corporate market, new ones are fiendishly expensive.

Reasonably priced media, 200GB uncompressed capacity. Ain't the fastest thing in the world, but it beats recapturing from DV tape.

I'm backing up my SI-2K footage onto standard USB 500gb hard drives - they hold about 10 hours and are cheap (cheap enough to do it twice - one for my place, one off site)
