Most of the rubber parts have failed in the dozens of Exabytes I have.

LTO is the direction the world has been going for a while. They have about three
generations of backwards compatibility, so that sets your maximum time for media
migration.

There is going to be a problem though if you really need to stick with SCSI, since
the transfer rates can't be handled off of a modern LTO drive.
