I'm using a Synology appliance at home with RAID1. Their appliance OS is pretty good and is built with points such as this in mind, that is, offsite backups can be made automatically to rsync servers, public clouds etc with the added option of client-side encryption. Very flexible package.

To address another point in this thread about the NextCloud appliances offered being old hardware, Synology appliances may be newer but still much less beefy than a custom-built storage server. The beefier the more expensive, however even the entry-level Synologys have good performance, considering the only thing they should do is handle data, fast.  What you're mostly paying for is their OS software and not the hardware.
