French hosting company ViFiB wants to place its servers in homes and offices with broadband Internet access.  By distributing these servers across all of France and the World, ViFiB hopes to avoid creating the single point of failure that a data center might become during a major power outage.  ViFiB believe that it is possible to build an online service with five-nines (99.999 percent) availability, even though individual servers may only be available 99 percent of the time, according to ViFiB co-founder Jean-Paul Smets.

To do this ViFiB’s customers will have to have their own redundancy and security on top of the servers it provides. ViFiB says that it will provide advice on how to do this.

ViFiB will rent out a virtual machine with 1GB of RAM and 10GB of solid-state disk (SSD) storage space, running on one core of an 8-core Intel i7 860 processor, for around €8 (US$9.70) per month.
