Seagate has a "new" hard disk product called Kinetic, this kind of hard disk can connect to ethernet directly and no extra computer system needed. This project is to build a Kinetic Storage Gateway, to export a legacy NAS interface to clients (TV, mobile phone, etc..) and hide kinetic protocol details behind the gateway.

Currently the gateway software is running on a read hardware router, in future it could be a program running on smart TV or phone, to access the kinetic hard disk cluster without hardware gateway.

This project will try to use existing open source technology as much as I can, to assemble a usable system within the hack week.
