Characteristics of a P2P Network - About

Conclusion

• The trend from the late 80ies to move from

P2P networks to client/server networks has

been partially reversed.

• Mainly illegal file sharing applications proofed

that P2P is a powerful and highly scalable

technology

• Especially when dealing with increasingly

larger media or program files, P2P has a big

advantage over client/server architecture in

terms of performance and stability
