Corporate intranet merging

Hm, they want to migrate all of our desktop machines at work to be inside our mother company's intranet/domain. What comes along with it is, that all harddisk will be erased to allow only permitted software bundles inside the network.

It's getting interesting... seems that there are lots of unanswered questions. For example no one has any clue, how to exchange data between the machines inside and outside the network (development machines have to stay outside). 250MB/person for saving data during the migration is also ridiculous. I've got ~16 gigs to backup :P

Found something interesting. Seems to be a (almost) lightning-fast and memory-efficient data structure: Judy
