version is done by number of users, and expensive (e.g. 20-30x Dropbox

The /vm you posted earlier looks interesting. Is it just for a single
machine? To use it in a work environment, I'd need to install it on two
or three cloud servers, and have them automatically be syncing, and
automatically be handling fail-over.  If it did that out of the box, so
all I have to do on each machine is as trivial as:
   ./start --other-machines=,

then that is worth a serious look!
