Release time:2014-5-14 14:49:05 Source: Lang cloud technology

A peertopeer (P2P) network is a type of decentralized and distributed network architecture in which individual nodes in the network (called "peers") act as both suppliers and consumers of resources, in contrast to centralized clientserver model where client nodes request access to resources provided by central servers.In a peertopeer network, tasks (such as searching for files or streaming audio/video) are shared amongst multiple interconnected peers who each make a portion of their resources (such as processing power, disk storage or network bandwidth) directly available to other network participants, without the need for centralized coordination by servers.
