Email systems provide massive storage capability. Confronted with the idle situation of vast and dispersal network storage space of the public email systems, the authors developed an email-based distributed storage system with scalability and fault-tolerability to integrate email storages and provide a uniform access to manage the email servers from multiple providers. To ensure the availability and reliability, their distributed storage system applies Information Dispersal Algorithm (IDA) to encode and disperse data into pieces and encapsulates them as email attachments to save in multiple email servers to achieve network storage.
