File Storage & BDR

I have a client that is in need of a redundant file storage solution that is also capable of off-site backup for disaster recovery. An online backup service for disaster recovery isn't really feasible with their internet connection.

What I am looking for is a NAS (or similar) with say 3-4 drives in a RAID 5 or 6 and have another drive or two that can be hot swapped with a couple spares to be taken off-site in case of fire or other disasters to the building where the file server resides. Storage capacity would be 2TB - 4TB.

Are you looking for offsite  backup or DR?

One consists of having a spare set of your data off site,the other being how fast can you get the biz back up and running.

Actually the speed of data restoration is not that important. The most important thing for this client would be offsite copies of the data.

For simplicity I guess I could just do a Synology, Iomega, etc NAS with RAID 5 and then rotate out backups of the RAID volume to a few USB drives that could be taken offsite. I was just looking for a more robust automatic solution.
