I've heard good things about OpenStack. It's open source, so that means it has a lot of people's eyes on the source code which makes inserting malicious code extremely difficult to impossible. It's only offered through 3rd party vendors however, so you'll need to look at each of them and decide which is best for you.

Synology has a line of NAS devices. I have a small one for the home network, but they make big ones for the office. They do everything you are asking about, check their manuals on how to set it up. I like the low power and low noise their machines have, plus they have options for RAID redundancy. I think you have to purchase the hard drives separately, their machine has the operating system, file system and backup system apps etc. It has been very reliable for me.
