Look to Verbatim UltraLife™ Gold Archival Grade DVD-R media to preserve your family photos and home movies as well as critical corporate data. Each disc is manufactured using proprietary unique dual reflective layers to maximize both compatibility and longevity. To further extend media lifetime, Verbatim UltraLife DVDs contain a hard coating on the recording side to protect the discs from scratches.
Verbatim's proprietary dual reflective layer technology is comprised of a silver layer for broad compatibility and a gold layer for long archival life. The highly reflective silver layer allows the UltraLife DVD-R disc to look like a standard silver disc to DVD drives and recorders. This feature provides a low initial error rate after recording, important for long archival life, and the same drive read/write compatibility as standard silver-only discs.
The gold reflective layer, naturally resistant to corrosion, prevents oxygen from coming through the DVD bonding material and corroding the silver reflective layer. Silver oxidation can be a primary factor which limits the lifetime of DVD media.
The combination of MKM's patented Metal AZO DVD recording dye, revolutionary Dual Reflective Layer technology and proprietary hard coating enables Verbatim UltraLife archival-grade DVD-R discs to deliver new levels in longevity and performance without sacrificing compatibility. These discs are built to last as long as 100 years.*

Pros: Best DVD media out there.
Cons: EXPENSIVE, but to get the best, you need to pay good money.
Other Thoughts: To TEX, 3011 is not 100 years from now, that is 1000 years from now. 100 years from now is 2111.

Good DVD For Archiving
Pros: Its a dvd. I guess to rank high I can say I have burnt about 25 so far with no coasters. I will say they are pretty and gold. From what I read they have a much better lifespan than regular CD/DVD media. I needed to combine some CD's into DVD's for archiving.
Cons: They are expensive but with backup media especially for long term storage you get what you pay for.
Other Thoughts: If you do get these do a bit of reading on proper storage and such of this type of media. I don't recommend shoving these disk into a paper sleeve and cramming them in a filing cabinet for storage. Use plastic cases and store vertical.
