You say you need a file system, does that have to be a POSIX
compatible file system (ie. mountable) or do you just need to store
some files?
If you just need to store some files, you could have a look at Hadoop
or more specifically HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System), which
consists of java daemons which can synchronize files around for you
and manage all the redundancy. Libraries exists for all kinds of
languages to hook into the system, so there should be something which
could fit into your needs.
