The duo wants a 300 GB capacity disk by 2015

Sony and Panasonic have announced that they have signed a basic agreement that will see them jointly develop a new standard for professional-use optical discs. The objective of the two companies is to expand their business for long-term digital data storage by developing an optical disc with a capacity of at least 300 GB.
The two companies are directly targeting businesses that need archival storage including motion picture, broadcasting, and cloud service industries.

Optical discs are likely to remain a preferred long-term storage option because the discs are dust- and water-resistant. Another significant benefit of using optical discs is that they allow inter-generational compatibility between different formats -- that means older optical formats can be read on current generation optical drives.
Sony and Panasonic hope to make the 300GB optical disc available by 2015.

No, but the simple act of running a RaidZ-2 on a FreeNAS box at your house, and one at a trusted friend/family and copying stuff from primary to secondary every now and again will certainly help the lay person . Then again, so would a less-costly distributed external hard-drive option (if you're not like the 24TB archiver who posted above).

I'd like to see a lay-person understand anything you just typed. ;-)

"simple act" is pretty obvious :P
