The distribution of substantial amounts of data to a large number of clients is a problem that is often tackled by peer-to-peer(P2P)architectures. Bottlenecks are alleviated by distributing the work of the server to all participating peers. Content is no longer passed directly from the server to all clients but only to a small subset of peers from where it is forwarded to a different subset of...

Peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have proved to be a powerful and highly scalable alternative to traditional client-server architectures for content distribution. They offer the technical means to efficiently distribute data to millions of clients simultaneously with very low infrastructural cost. Previous studies of content distribution architectures have primarily focused on homogeneous systems...

Traditional client-server content distribution techniques usually suffer from scalability problems when dealing with large client population or sizable content. The advent of peer-to-peer (P2P) network offers the technical means to efficiently distribute data to millions of clients simultaneously with very low infrastructural cost. Previous studies of content distribution architectures have...
