Peer-to-Peer networks are widely considered to be the next big thing that will save the internet from collapse. The idea is that instead of considering customers as passive recepients of content, we view them as resources, namely their storage capacity and communication bandwidth, which can be used to serve the whole network. The project aims to design and implement some algorithms for content distribution in p2p networks and to test them out on Planetlab (http://www.planet-lab.org/) an open platform for developing, deploying and testing planetary scale services. The project will be carried out in collaboration with Contribio (http://www.contribio.com/) a local start-up company at Lindholmen.
