In the mid-1980s, the term P2P, or peer-to-peer, was used by local area network vendors to describe the computing nodes on their networks.  Previous to that, the term was used to describe ARPAnet, the military-backed computer network that would become the model for today's Internet[1].  Today however, the term P2P has a very different meaning - it has come to describe applications designed specifically to exploit peer relationships between computers, using the Internet as an extension of the local network[2].  Its primary uses include not only the sharing of huge amounts of information, but also the sharing o...   [tags: Technology Essays]

What´s a Peer-to-peer Network? - Introduction: Peer-to-peer (P2P) is a substitute network design to the conventional client-server architecture. P2P networks utilize a decentralised model in which each system, act as a peer, and serve as a client with its own layer of server functionality. A companion plays the role of a client and a server in the meantime. That is, the node can send calls to other nodes, and at the same time respond to approaching calls from other companions in the system. It is different from the traditional client-server model where a client can just send requests to a server and then wait for the server’s response....   [tags: re-association, napster, client-server]
