I can't tell if you're trying to back upt he QNAP over the network or if you're referring to a native QNAP Crashplan app. My QNAP server (Intel-based TS-851) oes offer a Crashplan app -- I have installed it but never tried it. I mostly use the QNAP to back up a Windows 2012R2 Server and that does run Crashplan, which works very well and is unlimited. I use the $15/month family plan which protects 5 machines -- very reasonable and I have 4-5TB of RAW and TIFF photos and DV family videos in their system.

I recently signed up for Amazon's unlimited storage ($60/year, I believe) and have been experimenting with using odrive to sync server directories to the Amazon cloud. It offers local encryption/decryption so if the cloud account is hacked, they would see just a bunch of random directory names and filenames. odrive is still a work in progress and is not free if you want encryption (then it's about $100/year for the software), but it claims to work with any cloud (Amazon, OneDrive, Box, Dropbox). The main impediment seems to be Amazon's limited API, and like all cloud drive-type storage, a lack of versioning so if your files get clobbered and subsequently synchronized, you've still lost them. But there are ways to avoid that and I'm using it mostly for offline storage (it can create placeholders for migrated files on the local machine so you can see what you had, and recover a specific file by just opening it). Still, there's a learning curve.

So I'll probably stick to a combination of Crashplan, Amazon and ODrive until the next thing comes along.
