FilePool, a Belgium-based startup that sold file "tokens" (essentially MD5
or similar hashes of files) backed by lots of content storage has been
reborn as Centera from EMC, the big SAN/NAS vendor.  Essentially, it's an
intranet version of the FilePool idea -- persistent URLs provided by hashing
all docs.  Prices start at $207K for 5 TB of storage (with what sounds like
an additional 5 TB of mirrored backup).
