Use case: home directories in ipfs-cluster #3
I read in the meeting notes that you're asking for use cases. Here is my very personal use case and wishlist for ipfs-cluster. I'm not 100% sure if this doesn't go beyond the scope of ipfs-cluster, but I'll just write it down here anyway.
I want to replace any distributed filesystem I've currently in use with ipfs. I'm using XtreemFS (because it works well over WAN) and have been using AndrewFS, GlusterFS and HDFS (without WANdisco) in the past.
My first use case is to store home directories in ipfs clusters and these are the features that I would really like to have:
So how would I use the above?
I hope this is the same vision that you have for ipfs-cluster. I think it's a pretty common use case for a distributed filesystem.
