There are several ways to avoid centralized services.  One is to host 
services on decentralized servers, another is to avoid client-server 
architecture altogether and use P2P architectures instead.  Yet another 
is to completely avoid always-on networking and instead use sneakernet.

The approach used with FreedomBox is that of decentralized servers.  
Extremely decentralized: One server per user.

So in the context of FreedomBox your question does not make sense.

Hope that helps,

 - Jonas
