Welcome to the P-Grid website!
| P-Grid is a next generation peer-to-peer platform for distributed information
management beyond mere file-sharing. P-Grid's most important properties are:
P-Grid is a truly decentralized structured P2P system which does not
require central coordination or knowledge. It is based purely on
randomized algorithms and local interactions and targeted at
environments with low online probabilities of peers.
- complete decentralization
- decentralized load balancing
- data management functionalities (update)
- management of dynamic IP addresses and identities
- efficient search
P-Grid differs from other approaches such as Chord, CAN, Pastry,
etc. in terms of practical applicability (especially in respect to
dynamic network environments), algorithmic foundations (randomized
algorithms with probabilistic guarantees), robustness, and
