MogileFS is a great alternative to S3.  It's old, but proven by folks
who have been using it for years.

The mailing list, site/wiki and bug-trackers are unfortunately hosted on
a non-Free service, but they accept patches/pulls on the mailing list.
There's no CLA requirement for contributions, either :)

Disclaimer: I have become a major contributor to MogileFS in recent
years, but have never had any affiliation with any (now-defunct?)
companies which formed it.  I also maintain the Ruby client library
and wrote an alternative, easy-to-install storage daemon (cmogstored).
