Looking for web-accessible NAS Solution

I'm look for a web-accessible NAS solution that meets the following requirements:

1.  A single location accessilbe from anywhere via the internet with user-level security to store and share files
2.  Automate remote back-up of workstations to the NAS
3.  Easy to setup and maintain (no IT staff required)

Any suggestions?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To do remote backups you probably need to run software on a workstation or something as most nas won't have this built in. I'd suggest looking at the drobo pro and promise vessraid.

How about something smaller? Like 4 TB max similar to Iomega® StorCenter™ ix4-200d Network Storage
Aaron TomoskyDirector of Solutions ConsultingCommented:
If you have a box laying around, put 3x 2tb drives in and install openfiler. Run a raid5. You will get far more functionality than with any low end nas box.

I aree with aarontomosky.
I have been running openfiler on 2 locations for over 2 years now as storage for VMare host.
Alot of powercuts and other stuf.  Very stable, rich with functionality, easy to install, setup and manage, well documentated.

If you want a reel fast SAN/NAS, check out Nexentastore.  You can use SSD as reed and write cashe!!!   But this is a bit more advanced.

If you want a easy and stable solutions, I recomend, Openfiler.   www.openfiler.com

Sorry for my bad english.

No resources to build my own. Any suggestions for an off-the-shelf solution?

Like I said at first, drobo or promise vessraid. I've also heard good things about qnap but never tried them.
I have just instaled readynad from rom netgear.

Works fine, compatible with VMware, supports several technologies, cheap.
READY NAS from netgear.
