Personal cloud storage is all the rage, but suppose every new house/apartment complex came with a big one wired and fitted into a coolish utility area. Housing is typically built and offered with basic appliances anyway, stove and oven, water heater. Why not a cloud?

In this manner residences could contribute to the overall global storage. Perhaps ten terabytes per unit x 100 buildings = 1 petabyte in that neighborhood. The homeowner/building owner would get a utility credit for contributing their unit to the hive.

       Installing a new computer near the heat of a stove or the wet of a water heater is not long run practical plan. A separate building near the community fail safely electric power backup generator or battery is a better location for your cloud.
