Drive Extender Technology Available on Linux

The Linux community has been busy creating Greyhole, which is based on the Windows Home Server Drive Extender concept, but open source, running on Linux

Greyhole is an application that uses Samba to create a storage pool of all your available hard drives (whatever their size, however they’re connected), and allows you to create redundant copies of the files you store, in order to prevent data loss when part of your hardware fails.

If you would like to try it, it’s available now for testing. More details are available from here and here.
