Perhaps tahoe-lafs and a script simplifying its
configuration would do this job.

Ideally, freedomboxes could be preconfigured to join a
tahoe group so they could have reliable online storage
and each member of the group would also proxy the
content of any member of the group and there'd be
some kind of p2p dns so any user proxying through a
freedombox could find it, kind of like the .onion pseudo-
top level domain that torproject provides.  Maybe the
Tor hidden service feature can be used- can here be
redundant servers in that scheme?
