Weekend Project: Get Started with Tahoe-LAFS Storage Grids (Linux.com)

Over at Linux.com, Nathan Willis describes how to set up Tahoe-LAFS grids for encrypted, distributed storage with strong access controls that disallow the storing node from accessing the data—only the owner (and those they share the location with) can assemble and decrypt it. "Beyond that, though, Tahoe offers peer-to-peer distributed data storage with adjustable levels of redundancy. You can tune your "grid" for performance, fault-tolerance, or strike a balance in between, and you can use heterogeneous hardware and service providers to make up your nodes, providing you with a second layer of protection. Furthermore, although you can use Tahoe-LAFS as a simple distributed filesystem, you can also run web and (S)FTP services directly from your Tahoe grid."
