I have two 4TB Lacie Quadra external hard drives. One is a back up for the other. Every three or four years I buy a new one and regulate the older one for the back up. So far it’s been working.

What would you guys recommend for cloud storage for say at least 2tb?  This is mainly photographs I really don't want to loose

I don't recommend cloud storage for such a large library unless you host it yourself.

Get a couple extra 4 TB drives and keep them with trusted friends and family, or in a safe deposit box. Much cheaper than a cloud subscription I bet, and won't take days and days to load terabytes over your data connection.

I do audio and multi-angle video. As much as I like storing it all in the cloud it's not an option with this amount of data (50+ GB per show)

I have almost 8TB on Backblaze. It took 7 months to upload, but I, like you have lots of video and audio content.

That's $5 a month?

I did the $50 a year deal. You get a free month (so do I) if you use my referral link. https://secure.backblaze.com/r/01scop If this is not allowed, please delete or PM me, and I will remove.

I run a Synology Disk station. They make many but nice devices and easy to use. I have 4 WD red 2TB drives in it now and then a nightly backup to an external connected to the NAS. so nothing offsite but its fast and more than enough i think for most people. I also have most of my older library on DVD-A and DVD-R but I haven't burned physical data in a long time

offsite is nice if you can swing it. You could have your local NAS sync to like google storage or something similar.

I also have a Synology DiskStation with 4 drives, which gives you 3 drives of space after accounting for redundancy. I back it up weekly to a WD MyBook 8 TB USB drive.
This is an expensive option, but it has a lot of features, most of which I don't use.
The one that I make the most use of is the Audio Station, which allows my entire audio collection to be streamed to my phone (or sent to a Google Chromecast Audio dongle attached to my stereo).  (Their Photo Station and Video Station will do the same for photos and videos...)
The other function that I use all the time is the Download Station, which is essentially a torrent client that runs in the background.  Perfect for getting your DIME ratios up!
This is an expensive option and powerful enough to handle the accounts of a small business.  Not terribly difficult to set up and run, but it would have been nice to have an expert walk me through it the first time!

If you just need raw storage, a couple of WD MyBook drives would do the trick.
