The P-Grid Project

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:
  • complete decentralization
  • self-organization
  • decentralized load balancing
  • data management functionalities (update)
  • management of dynamic IP addresses and identities
  • efficient search
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.

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 flexibility.
