Best turnkey online backup solution for terabytes

Baeowulf (1872730) writes "Hey all. I'm the CEO and Sysadmin for a 9 person startup. We make software for the entertainment industry so we have, at any given time, about 4 terabytes of our own data and client data, growing at 1tb per year currently. In addition to our in-house Daily, Weekly and Monthly backups on RAID servers, for offsite I make my COO lug home ext hd's 3x per week. I need a TURNKEY solution for online offsite backup of this size that's economical for a startup. Encryption isn't critical but stability and ease-of-use is. For example, if my entire town was attacked by giant radioactive Japanese monkeys, I would want my chairman, who is on another coast, to be able to log in to our backup, navigate to a folder, and deliver a file to a client as if it was his desktop. I'm an expert level Windows user. I built all of our workstations from mainboard up. But linux is not something I know well, nor can I take the time to learn it as my job is also to invent and sell product. What's the community's advice for multi-terabyte online backup that's waaaay easy to use?"
