Gives the concept of p2p and discusses the difference between the centralized and distributed concepts of the p2p

3. P2P(PEER to PEER) Technology
P2P is a Networking Software where clients communicate with each other rather than go through a server
The most common way of linking computers so they can share data or processing power is via client-server architecture. Servers store data and applications that PCs can access.
A different way to achieve data and application sharing is by allowing PCs to connect directly with each other and act as both clients and servers. This is the basis of Peer-to-Peer computing.
A number of years ago applications that allow these direct connections were developed for use in office environments with a small number of PCs.
Programs such as AppleTalk Network and Windows for Workgroups are early examples of this technology known as Peer-to-Peer (P2P).
4. P2P continued
Recent developments have made it possible to expand P2P technology to computers connected to the Internet as well as those connected through a network.
P2P programs fall into two major categories:
(ii) decentralized .
Centralized System In a centralized system a server maintains directories of what is stored in each peer computer. The central server directs the connections between peers. Thus, while the connection is made directly from peer to peer, a server is still necessary

6. P2P continued Decentralized System With a decentralized program each peer connect directly to other peers without being directed by a server. These connections are repeated making the resulting network, in theory, infinitely large. In reality this size of a network is constrained by the number of layers of computers a message has to travel through.

History of Napster
Two college students, 19-year-old Shawn Fanning and 20-year-old Sean Parker founded Napster in late 1999.
They originally just wanted to trade music over the Internet with their friends, but their P2P network has since grown to a user group of over twenty million.
The Napster phenomenon has increased interest in peer-to-peer networks to a fever pitch .

10. Napster continued. Napster is a centralized or server-based P2P network. With a server-based network, there is a central list of information that is accessed by all the users of the system. Here is what happened when you decided to look for the song: 1.You opened the Napster utility. 2.Napster checked for an Internet connection. 3.If it found a connection, Napster logged you onto the central server. The main purpose of this central server was to keep an index of all the Napster users currently online and connect them to each other. It did not contain any of the MP3 files. 4.You typed in the title or artist of the song you were looking for. 5.The Napster utility on your computer queried the index server for other Napster computers online that had the song you requested.
11. Napster Continued. 6.Whenever a match was found, the Napster server informed your computer where to find the requested file. 7.When the server replied, Napster built a list of these systems in the results window. 8.You clicked on the file(s) that interested you and then chose Download . 9.Your copy of Napster attempted to establish a connection with the system hosting the file you selected. 10.If a connection wa successfully made, the file began downloading. 11.Once the file wa downloaded, the host computer broke the connection with your system. 12.You opened up your MP3 player software and listened to the song.
13. Comparisons of Centralized and Distributed Model
File is instantly Available in Centralized Model but in Distributed Model it is subjected to Availability
Shutdown of Distributed Model is Impossible but is possible to turn off the Central Server
There is no Bootstrap Problem in Centralized model
Flooding of request packets occur in Distributed Model but not in the case of Centralized Model
Search time is higher in Distributed Model
17. Points to Ponder.
P2P is Good or Bad ?
P2P eats up all the Bandwidth, As an Engineer what we are going to do to meet the Bandwidth requirements in the Feature.?
What is the Difference Between SOA and P2P ?
What AI Techniques can be applied to p2p to make it Better in the future ?
Do we have any ideas to stop piracy in the future ?
18. Hybrid P2P Technology
The Hybrid P2P is a combination of the best features of peer-to-peer delivery together with the best features of central server or unicast delivery.
We have taken the security, high quality, and control of unicast technology and combined it with the extreme efficiency of peer-to-peer delivery.
The result is a very secure, high quality, stable, quickly adaptable network that uses up to 98% less bandwidth.
This makes it better than unicast and better than pure peer-to-peer.
It also creates proven higher quality connections.

28. Popular P2P Clients
33. Common Terms Used in P2P Peer A peer is anyone who is downloading or uploading the file Client The software that allows you to download and upload (share) files using Torrent. The Torrent client opens the .torrent file and allows connections from your peers. Tracker A tracker is a server that keeps track of which seeds and peers are in the
