Option 1: System admins can do a database back up and archive the attachments. This option can help you to restore the data to different database environment in future.
Option 2: Update the properties for export to increase the number of records that can be exported in bulk to a limit that you need to export prior to exporting the issues. I would suggest to plan for export based on either Release or Issue Type to avoid huge volume of data to one output file. I had experience with exporting 36K+ issues in multiple files and it will not help much to save in one output file. But you will have to archive the Attachments from the attachments directory for JIRA separately.
Since you have asked for cost effective solution, I had to stop with only two options.
the most flexible and free solution is utilizing JIRA REST API for doing this kind of archiving activities.
You need admin permissions and invest investigating time how to use JIRA rest api and make this kind of custom solution.
