Adaptive Replication in Peer-to-Peer Systems

In The 24th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems, March 04. Vijay Gopalakrishnan, Bujor Silaghi, Bobby Bhattacharjee and Pete Keleher Abstract:Peer-to-peer systems can be used to form a low-latency decentralized data delivery system. Structured peer-to-peer systems provide both low latency and excellent load balance with uniform query and data distributions. Under the more common skewed … Read more
