Mhhh ... you are planning to use the NAS as a mobile staging area?
Do you need a way to push backup data from your backup clients
because you don't want to implement a pull solution for security
If not why not use bacula or some other backup tools.
Even a linux laptop as a mobile storage archive sounds like
a better idea. ( Neither CIFS nor NFS on a NAS is build for
streaming and the laptop is build to survive regular movement)
On a last note - nothing beats a (professional) tape in reliability
and it makes offsite storage really easy.
Don't get me wrong - I love NAS - I just don't think this is the right
tool for your problem.
