Remote backups copy data from a share on your LaCie NAS to a share on a second NAS. A second NAS can be another LaCie NAS running LaCie NAS OS (see LaCie Network Storage for details). It can also be a non-LaCie NAS compatible with rsync.
The share that you back up on your LaCie NAS is the Source. The second NAS is the Destination that stores the backup.
|Source NAS||Destination NAS||Destination NAS Location||Destination share||Type of Remote Backup|
|LaCie NAS A on the local network||LaCie NAS B or a third-party rsync-compatible NAS||Local network||Network Backup Share or rsync equivalent||Local NAS-to-NAS|
|LaCie NAS A on the local network||LaCie NAS B or a third-party rsync compatible NAS||Network outside of the local network (e.g. a colleague's home or a branch office)||Network Backup Share or rsync equivalent||Offsite NAS-to-NAS|
All remote backups from a LaCie NAS to a second LaCie NAS are copied to a special share called Network Backup. The Network Backup share on the destination LaCie NAS must be enabled before creating a remote backup job.
