How to preserver a large file

Running Small Business Server 2003 premium

I have a large log file from a backup program (NovaStor).  Its 65 gigs in size.  I want to put it someplace safe.  What would you do?

-      save it to cds?  (This would take about 109 cds  sounds impractical)

-      save it to a usb drive and hope the usb drive never fails?

-      save it to dvds?  That would require about 17 dvds.  How would you break up the file so it could fit on multiple dvds?

-      Can something like Winzip backup  this file and span disks?
