      Yeah and it would actually work with Lemmy, since pict-rs has a S3 interface. They even list Lemmy as a possible but untested app on their documentation.

      I think I will try using Garage for this server once we move it.

    I’m trying to wrap my head around what the implementation of a self-hosted distributed filesystem looks like. Is the idea that I would get a few friends, all running servers in our separate homes, and run a garage instance across all of them?

      Yes pretty much. That seems to the the intended use-case, but I think it could also be used locally to distribute/replicate storage on multiple servers easily.

      Of course the “friend” could be also a VPS rented somewhere as an off-site backup.

        That is cool then! I don’t see an application for myself at the moment, but anything that implements AWS services without Amazon (or any corp for that matter) is great in my book!
