Abstract—Storage for storing data is indispensable. If a storage capacity becomes insufficient, we can increase its capacity by adding new disks. It is, however, difficult to purchase a new disk when a budget is limited. On the other hand, there are many unused idle resources such as used personal computers despite those use value. In order to solve those problems, used personal computers can be reused as storage. Accordingly, it is necessary to discuss a storage system that considers characteristics of used personal computers. In addition, in order to reduce works required for an installation and operation, it is necessary to automate processing necessary for construction. In this paper, we organize the characteristics of used personal computers, and consider a storage system based on the characteristics. We have then implemented a system that automatically establishes an environment as a node of the distributed storage system on each used personal computer.

Index Terms—Distributed storage, used personal computer, idle resource.
