There are several services that do very similar to what you are wanting. Are you wanting file or system backups?

Just a few of the simpler things that will need dealt with:

If you IP changes every few days, you are either going to need to get static IPs from the ISP or use a service like DynDNS

To setup the VPN do you plan to use a computer for your "mini NAS" or what kind of hardware are you looking at?  It will have to support VPN unless you plan to setup the VPN at the router and have the NAS hardware behind it.

Does the backup software you plan to use support automated backups to multiple locations? Or are you planning on a more custom option?
