Peer-2-Peer Backup Ideas

At the Desktop Summit I stood almost 2 hours in the yard talking to Michael Bell and amongst many other things we got an idea about how to solve the problem of Desktop backups in large environments.

The basic idea is to go away from a centralized approach and solve the problem with a peer-2-peer solution. The main benefit is scale-out vs. scale-up: As the amount of Desktops that require a backup grows, so does the amount of Desktops that provide backup space.
