...I have a home-built computer on my local LAN running the original Windows Home Server. It is a very efficient back up system that only copies cluster changes from a drive as needed, not the whole file as in an incremental backup. It has redundancy in case one of the drives in the system fails. Has scheduled automatic backup. Can add additional drives to the storage no matter what size and it automatically includes them into the backup and redundancy (the latest WHS cannot do this). At any time I can retrieve any file that has been backed up.  I also use it as a server where all our CDs, my program install files and other important files like photos I do not keep on our computers are stored. My DAM, Extensis Portfolio, keeps a record of all stored files with thumbnails of every photo. If needed a complete restore of a disk can be done from a backed up disk.

Of course it is located in our home not remotely so a small danger there. But, the data is not in the cloud where it can be hacked.
