Dropbox alternative or own cloud service?

I have a client who has several computers and heavily uses Dropbox. Now, a few years ago I managed to build from scraps a server using a computer who was on its route to the trash bin.
Installed Ubuntu on it and set up OwnCloud as secondary back ups for the files.
Years passed and by now client asked me if there is something better and reliable as Dropbox, but does not want to spend too much money.
Well, doesn’t have to be on-site solution, just wanted to know what software solution can be a candidate.

Seems like the obvious solution to me either FreeNAS or Synology. Both are amazingly reliable and have a ton of features.

Both I believe can also be connected with Backblaze as well.
