If you had bothered to look at the Support menu on Synology's main page, you would have found this. Looking forward to your apps.

This solves allot of requests I see on the forums regarding a need for a true backup solution as well as online (Cloud) backup. Wouldn't think it would be too difficult to integrate since they have a linux version of the software.
1) Crashplan is a backup service that offer backup to the cloud (Which has been asked for numerous times on the forums). It is one of the least, if not the least, expensive options out there in terms of pricing so many users would take advantage of this service. By having the app run on the synology box, you are taking advantage of higher throughput since its directly connected to the network vs. running crashplan on a desktop and pulling the data over the network through the desktop and then back out over the Internet.
2) Crashplan is not just a backup to cloud service. The strength in crashplan is it offers a unified backup soltuion for offsite cloud backup, offsite local backup and onsite backup using the same software. Currently the crashplan offsite backup software allows backup of computers (PC, MAC, Linux) to other "Computers" in the home or offsite to another family members or friends computers that also run the crashplan software. The benefit of this type of offsite backup vs. the cloud is that it would be more local and your data more easily accessible in the case of a disaster or hardware failure. By also adding this to the NAS itself you then would have the ability to not only backup the NAS to another Synology NAs running the crashplan software but also to any other computer running the crashplan software. Yes you can do this with Rsync but it is more technically advanced for many users. Also, the Integrated NAS to NAS backup over the Internet may be encrypted but the data stored at the other end is not. This is a big difference in terms of security. All backups via crashplan software are encrypted on the other end either with 128bit or a choice of 448 bit encryption.
3) Synology offers a basic backup software, but the crashplan software offers a seamless method for doing backups all of these ways above through a common easy to use interface with more true backup options. Backups contain 30 days worth of file changes (actually user definable with the crashplan+ software). Synology's backup is just a mirror image of what is currently on a users computer and/or NAS. This offers a true backup solution if one delets a file in error or someone needs to go back and get a file from a certain date.
Here are the options for the way this could/would work if crashplan software is installed on a Synology server.
Users who store files on the computer and use a Synology NAS as a backup drive:
1) Backup their local mac's, linux & PC's machines to a synology server running crashplan's software.
2) That user can also backup that same PC to another family members computer, friends Computer and/or synology NAS over the Internet running crashplan software.
3) Allow that user to use the same crashplan software to also backup a copy to the cloud on crashplan's servers.
Users who store files Directly on a Synology NAS:
1) Use Crashplan's software on the Synology NAS to Backup to another Synology Server over the internet or LAN using crashplan's software.
2) Use the software running on the NAS to backup the NAS directly to the cloud on Crashplan's servers
3) Use the sotware on the NAS to backup files on the NAS to another family members or friends computer locally or over the internet running crashplan's software.
You can see the seamless benefits for a backup solution by adding this as a service to the Synology server.
