I think this is a major part of TAHOE-LAFS.

Tahoe-LAFS is a system that helps you to store files. You run a client program on your computer, which talks to one or more storage servers on other computers. When you tell your client to store a file, it will encrypt that file, encode it into multiple pieces, then spread those pieces out among multiple servers. The pieces are all encrypted and protected against modifications. Later, when you ask your client to retrieve the file, it will find the necessary pieces, make sure they haven't been corrupted, reassemble them, and decrypt the result.

Comment Steam on a Chromebook? Old News. (Score 3, Interesting) 45

I had Steam (both wine version and Linux version) working on my Asus C710 Chromebook a couple of years ago. The system itself lacked enough power to do any big gaming, but FTL worked well enough.

Last year I played quite a bit of Skyrim, streaming it from a Windows desktop elsewhere in the house.

Crouton is good stuff.
