Distributed Internet Archiving Protocol

DIAP (Distributed Internet Archiving Protocol) is a set of Bash shell scripts to set up a system using three backup nodes either between sites (e.g. between offices and homes) or over WANs. The application provides a decentralized, self-contained and managed storage utility. The emergence of a DVTL (Distributed Virtual Tape Library) is the end result. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. The scripts are a toolkit to help users set up their own project, and to help the writer improve the system and work in user space over SSH.
