Storage of backup nas device off site


I have a NAS device that I will need to store off site. I will be uploading data to it twice a year. Can any recommend a facility where I can store this data at? I am in California and would like to store it at another State.

Thomas RushCommented:
Disk is not well suited for long-term data storage in a powered-off state... and because of a combination of electricity, acquicition costs and data center floor space, powered disk costs 10x or more than tape over a 5- to 7-year period.    

Given that, are you sure you have picked the best technology for your business needs?
