What about an wireless router with hard drive ? The hard drive from your server must be an SSD and you can link to the NAS via wireless link and put the files there. Something like an regular linux distribution but with /home directory on the wireless NAS.In this way you're server can be at 200 meters from the storage point.
Also you can make an alternate storage for your server, Flash Pen based, using an usb hub and link all the usb Flash Pen's via LVM. But the only limitation is the read / write cycles. So to limit these knd of problems you should make an symlink to an external storage device (like I said - an wireless NAS) and define in it the / home folders and some folders from /var
What abou in some tough condition on the way of Black Sea? Salt, dust, rain, heat, fog all in one at the seashore of Black Sea.

We have there an wireless network with some windows servers and I want too change them. Also on the winery we have a lot of grapevines and 20 farms with grapes / grapevines. The website of the winery is http://www.murfatlar.com/

I don't remember the weather to be worse than what our units suffer here in Tokyo (hot and humid), but I didn't go in the winter, and we definitely don't have snowstorms here.
Let me check whether our contest rules prohibit us from taking a few bottles of wine... (For pure assessment purposes and without any influence on the result of this contest. Of course.)
