The snapshot reserve would need to be large, but the data change rate would govern the speed that it filled up. Note too that if you use NFS the reserve can be smaller than an iSCSI LUN because the snapshot only tracks the changes in the data you are storing. A LUN's contents must be copied every time (regardless of whether the LUN is full or not).
Yoh-dah, can you confirm the behavior of our snapshots?

The one thing I noticed about VirtualBox is that is has an option for VBoxHeadless, a VRDP-only server, that seems to fit the ReadyNAS model nicely.
At present, this is something I'm only doing for personal edification, but eventually I hope to get a couple of Pro's for work to provide off-site backup, as well as a few other features from a network management/administration perspective. A rack-mount Pro would fit the bill nicely!
I'm not "autorized" to follow your link...
