    3 The volunteergrid is a tahoe storage grid from users for users. Contrary to the TestGrid–which may be flushed at any times for development/testing reasons–the volunteergrid is meant as a stable alternative to the commercial [http://allmydata.com/ allmydata.com grid]. It was [http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2009-February/001248.html proposed by Eugene L.] in February 2009 and an introducer [http://allmydata.org/pipermail/tahoe-dev/2009-February/001341.html was set up] by Zooko after the idea received a fair amount of praise. There are usually between 15 and 20 active servers, but new servers are always welcome.
