Linux alternative to Windows 8 Storage Spaces

Hi Linux forums

I recently started to research Linux stuff because I noticed that Microsoft seems to be abandoning the desktop (mouse and keyboard) market. I want to stick with it and I'm trying go switch to Linux in as many ways as possible! I have experimented with Linux in the past but always had some kind of issue and it annoyed the hell out of me so I quit trying to use it but now I realise that at some point sooner or later I will have to switch (It's not a bad switch, just a hard one)

So in my transition I'm trying to see what alternatives linux can offer for certain features that are/were Windows exclusive. The feature that I'm currently looking into is the following: Windows Storage Spaces. In case you don't know what that is you can go here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-8/storage-spaces-pools and here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7R6fU0Tn6g

I have already been searching for an alternative to this. Currently I have only found this: http://sheepdog.github.io/sheepdog/ . But it seems like this is not a finished project yet. If any of you would like to help me in this 'quest' that would be great

Thank you all in advance!
