What media is preferred for long term storage? Using 6T passports now, but question their longevity.

I have the following setup using Microsoft Storage Spaces to set it up in parity mode for redundancy, which with the parity space loss of approximately 33%, I have a bit over 24TB of storage space (remember that 8TB drives are actually closer to 7.25TB when properly calculated). 

1 x USB 5 bay drive enclosure (they also make this in a USB-C version if your computer has a C port):
