Internet & Networking "It allows you to easily host your own website, email, 'cloud' and more, all within arm's reach. It does this by interfacing with existing software and allowing the user to easily update and change settings with a graphical interface. No more need to depend on external cloud services, which can be insecure 'walled gardens' that require you to give up control over your data. arkOS will have several different components that come together to make a seamless self-hosting experience possible on your Raspberry Pi. Each of these components will work with each other out-of-the-box, allowing you to host your websites, email, social networking accounts, cloud services, and many other things from your arkOS node." I have to look into this.

What I want to see here is clustering, so that it would be possible to set up a cluster of these things with your friends and ensure some degree of availability.

Clustering is on the list of features that I hope to implement in the future. There is also a special server in the works to handle dynamic DNS and port forwarding integration for people with picky ISPs.
