Hello Experts,

We have a NAS with about 700 GB of data. I'd like to find a solution where i can backup the NAS to the cloud, even if it means replacing the NAS.  I've heard of some NAS units that connect to Amazon glacier but it's more of an archiving than a backup solution.

Suggestions will be greatly appreciate.

Thanks in advanced..

    Hi Jorge,

    Westren Digital has a pretty nice piece of equipment for small businesses that is its own cloud called the EX4. Here is the link to it:

    It has 4 bays and expands up to 16TB at a cost of around a $1,000.

    If that is a little too pricey then they have the EX2 that is around $600.
    Here is the link to it:

    Hope this helps.
