distributed storage array
years ago I had the idea that all these computers in our school, sitting there using 1/4 or less now of their drivespace, could be turned into a distributed storage array. maybe to run somekind of vast shadowcopy array or storing video feeds from cameras. I envisaged each pc would have a driver than made the diskspace available to the array but invisible to users to the pc. I dont know how you'd make a backup array of many parts function, there would certainly be room for many raid component. It was just a crazy idea, light-years beyond my ability to create. any thoughts?
