Default NAS with simple, reliable online backup

I'm looking for a NAS which will do online backups to a reliable online backup service. In my mind the perfect solution would be a NAS with a plugin or whatever that just worked with Carbonite or Mozy rather than me having to mess around with virtual drives and RSYNC etc but any suggestions welcome.

Thanks guys.

I set up one recently that used the Amazon s3 backup solution directly from the NAS drive. I also backup to an external hard drive and also is a raid 1 solution.

The NAS was. Synology S212J, they do a good rang mine was just for 4 users.

I get an email twice a day that both backups are completed. The NAS will also take backups from the client computers.

No it doesn't. You can hack it to work, but it does not work natively with a NAS.

OP, look into Netgear's ReadyNAS. They have both ReadyNAS Vault, which is a built-in online backup that works well, and also ReadyNAS Replicate, which would allow you to replicate data from one NAS to another via encrypted internet connection.

+1 for the ReadyNAS line.

Why don't you use and online backup service with local mirroring and network drive support built in?

Of course a lot of people prefer to use someone else.

I use Logmein Backup, it will backup to a NAS, external, whatever, and it will backup to my servers.
