CrashPlan Home cloud backup is no more (soon)...what to do now?

I've been subscribing to CrashPlan Home for over a year now and I love it. $150/year for up to 10 PCs, unlimited storage. To be honest it was almost too good to be true. I guess it will be gone within a year, once everyone runs out of their current subscription.

I'm currently using it for 8 PCs but could realistically go down to 4. I was using it on all 8 because I had the licenses, so why not?

Backblaze at $50/year per PC is quite the price jump. Is it worth it? Who is using what? I backup other ways - local media swapped in/out of a fire safe periodically, full backups to a local NAS, etc. There is just something about a constant remote cloud backup that makes me sleep easy at night. Saved my butt a couple times too.

Any thoughts?

Have you considered replicating your NAS to a secondary NAS at your parents or any other relative?

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

I am going to look more at Amazon Glacier to backup my NAS. It's going to be a price increase.

I wonder if Code42's Enterprise plan will work (to back up a NAS) for at $10 a month per device?

OP,

If you have 8 boxes getting backed up, why aren't you backing them up to each other?
Especially if they are at different locations, for instance you could back all of your pc's up to your parents pc's and vice a versa.
You'd have them off-site and also on multiple devices.

Does anyone have experience with Duplicati or ARQ? I want to be able to back up data from several PC computers to a QNAP box (which only runs Linux).
