I am currently researching fully distributed file stores via Distributed Hash Tables. I have been looking for viable services to convert to a fully distributed system. This is now on the top of my list. Lets make this better! allow all the colleges to partially serve and have backups of all the content.
Another very funny thing is that until now, CS research community always publish paper with improved results, good performance. It is definitely not true and the experience from failure should be also a good material to share.
