Default Backing up WD or Buffalo NAS to the cloud

I have been using crash42 to backup my NAS off site. Unfortunately they have stopped their home user service and I have now got to find a new solution. Does anyone have recommendations for backing up a NAS to the cloud?

BOX
DROPBOX
GOOGLE
ONE DRIVE

Depending on your NAS (I use Synology) there are third party apps available to access most of the common Cloud services.

I always thought those services were for smallish amounts of data, 10's of GB, not terabytes. Do the third party apps provide secure encryption to these services? Can you requests a hard drive containing the back if needed?

Crash42 is suggesting Carbonite, but that only backs up mapped drives. So I would need to leave a PC switched on.

It looks like Synology is the only NAS that supports S3 and Glacier out of the box.

I would not store Terrabytes in the cloud anyway.
You are better buying a second NAS.

I run an 'operational NAS' that runs 24/7, and a 'Reserve NAS' that is used for occasional backups from the main. The reserve is always stored at a different address and has 2 sets of hard drives. Just a matter of developing your own strategy.

Another Synology user here. I use Backblaze B2 for cloud stuff. So far, no complaints with their service. Don't know if WD or Buffalo produces support it.

The model I had was one NAS backed up to another NAS nightly. The second NAS then backed up to the cloud automatically. Unfortunately I don't have a anywhere off site to place a second NAS close by.

Thanks, the Synology option is a bit more spendy than the WD or Buffalo offerings. Maybe its time to spend out on some new hardware. I dont really want to use rsync to AWS.

You might be able to use this - https://www.duplicati.com/

I use it on a PC but it says it can be run on a headless system/NAS.

Block based backup to S3, OneDrive, ftp, etc. Open source.

You can slide out the hard drives on a rotational basis and just store them elsewhere..

Default Re: Backing up WD or Buffalo NAS to the cloud

I have one buffalo nas in london mirrored to another buffalo nas in the caribbean over the wirld wide wait, smallest part of the pipe is 10mb, seems to work well. Commercial cloud storage is easily purchasable, dont assume its terribly expensive, and most importantly your bandwidth with them will be huge compared with things like icloud dropbox or onedrive.

We used these peopke in the nhs, for backups and sync, you can stream 4k video from their sync services . https://www.redstor.com/en-gb/data-m...latform/backup

I only have single drive NAS boxes. Also I want a hands free solution

This is similar to what I have except they are in the same location. I have one NAS in the garage which backs up to the NAS in the basement. It does have the option to use ssl to backup to another Buffalo NAS over the WWW, but I need a site to place the second NAS
