'Forever' is a long time.

'Offline' is difficult to deal with long-term (i am thinking decades to centuries) such is the nature of technology and the lack of any real history we have of digital data management,
  Personally I would say the best bet is keeping your data 'live' online to some extent, it is the only real way to monitor and control the inevitable decay.
  Basically your data's lifespan is related to how long you can convince someone to care for it for you.
