    shared online storage


    Hi,

    I'd like to setup a mountable shared online redundant storage device with my friends
    e.g.
    5 friends each share some drive space online, combined to make a single mountable device
    preferable a setup that uses peers
    what can be used to do this?

    also keep in mind you can use nfs if all your friend will access it from a Linux machines , or samba if you want some windows guys to access it .

    ssh is powerful and secure , but you need to share a password for a specific user in order to let them access the drive, about ftp i don't have to much informations , but nfs is always the perfect way to do .

    Regards.
    Linux is not only an operating system, it's a philosophy.

    ssh and ftp are slow
    I'd like to stripe the information among the friends the reason for this is speed, 8kdown/384up.

    Instead of downloading at one persons upload speed we download at the combined upload speed. We all leave our machines on 24/7 so availability isnt an issue. Any ideas what software can do this?

    i find that fuse and sshfs is a good solution for a single mountable connection

    How would the following work...

    10 Computers on the internet
    All 10 run a NBD server
    All 10 run a NBD client of each and raid5 them together
    read-only should work, will writing work?

    the security could be fixed by running a secure VPN
