What are your transfer rates on your ds1512+?

I have tested a few lower end/midrange NAS from QNAP and they all did not perform that well. Re: did not saturate my gigabit port.

On a fairly full volume (15TB RAID5 with 3TB free), I get 90MBps write, 100MBps read.

Anyone familiar with a NAS which easily backs up to an off-site NAS?

Any of the Synology/QNAPs will do that through rsync, and I'm sure others too.

RAID typically gives you performance and storage and MAY also provide some level of redundancy for drive failure but that has nothing to do with a backup...esp off site backups.
RAID can be a backup if the data already exists somewhere else.

I understand rsync requires a static IP address, at least for the distant NAS. I was thinking simple as hosting a NAS at a relative's house to back up my NAS.

Not to my knowledge. It would require a consistent address, but you could use a dynamic DNS service to work around that.
