What you're looking for doesn't exist and can't exist. You're asking
for something "simple" that is also "reliable (with replication
support)" for storing huge numbers of huge files. Any system that is
the latter cannot possibly be the former. Asking for it to be free as
well is really pushing beyond the bounds of reality.

Among the non-free alternatives, I doubt that you're going to be able
to find anything simpler or more reliable than S3, with a management
layer on top.

But best of luck to you in your quest :-)
