Residential Backups that support NAS

I'm looking for a NAS drive that supports a residential friendly online backup service that's also Mac and Windows friendly.  

Any ideas?

I use Synology in a few places, but I think they'll only connect to AWS cloud, correct?

Synology is not limited to AWS Cloud.

You can connect Synology to your LAN. Put it on DMZ and make it accessible from the internet. Many things can be done with Synology.

Well, I'm looking for something that will link up to a cloud backup service without a host computer.  I can make a synology disk connect to a few different providers, but I think those are all commercial grade services (correct me if I'm wrong).  I'm trying to do this for a residential setup where all they have is laptops and they don't want to leave their computers at home for a few weeks while the backups propagate to the net.

Thats exactly what NAS does, backing up or storing the data without the need to be connected to a host computer.

Configure the NAS with the cloud, or configure the NAS to be accesible from outside using the portforwarding on router.

The time will depend on the speed of the end to end link between the receipient host and the NAS.

Thanks for the ideas.  I've used Synology for years, they're great, but according to them, they're only compatible with AWS, which is a wonderful service, but this client would prefer to avoid AWS.  In my search, I've been unable to find a NAS solution that works well with residential quality cloud backup solutions.  So it looks like we'll be sticking with AWS compatible stuff for the time being.

No real alternates to NAS drives that would work with other residential grade cloud services were proposed.
