Bitcoop is a peer to peer backup system that enables the storage of files on remote computers.

The size of files depends on the quantity you wish to share with the other peers. Bitcoop project is intended for server farms that wish to backup data among themselves.

Quick Howto:

To start the server, use the bin/run.sh script, or the bin/bitcoop init script. This has been tested under linux and OS X. A windows port is under way. To build bitcoop, take these steps:

0- Choosse a bootserver among the computers you wish to have in your network, set it's IP in the XML file.
1- cd bitccop
2- ant
3- cd native
4- scons
5- mv libBitCoop* ..
6- cd ..
7- edit bcoop.xml
You should have to change pretty much everything in the bcoop.xml file.
8- bin/run.sh

Do this on all the machines you want to use.

How this works

You run the bitcoop server on each machine that participate on your network.
You can schedule backups to occur at specified times
You can use the command line client bin/shell.sh to connect to computers to trigger backups or see some status information.
The first backup always takes more time since all the files have to be copied. Subsequent backups will be much faster.
