Off site backup to Google Drive

I purchased a 5 user licence of Google Apps for Work to take advantage of the unlimited storage in Google Drive with the belief that I would be able to implement an off-site backup plan by creating an email account for each department and backup their data from the NAS backup to the appropriate google drive account. Although not supported yet by Google I was told by multiple sources that my plan was very do-able and was told by Google that there are 3rd party options available.  

I'd like to know first if anyone out there is doing this and how. Is there a best practice out there yet? Software, etc.?

"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.

Are you set on the NAS solution? If you are open to other possibilities for backup and restore, I'd recommend Spanning cloud backup for Google Apps. I administer a 500+ user Google Apps domain and Spanning is a very reliable solution. It is built on Amazon web services platform so it is secure and redundant. It allows you to backup daily and restore directly back to Google Acct. You can even export user data if need be.  Another cloud solution we looked into was Backupify. It is very similar to Spanning.
