Title:A Model for Data Management in Peer-to-Peer Systems
Authors: Francis Otto, Drake Patrick Mirembe, Maybin Muyeba

Language: English

With the current growth in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) computing, data management in P2P systems has become a very important issue, yet from literature little research effort has been dedicated to this field. Data management in P2P systems covers a wide range of issues starting from storage and indexing, replication and search to security and privacy. In this paper we propose a modularized data management model for P2P systems that cleanly separates the functional components, enabling the implementation of various P2P services with specific quality of service requirements using a common infrastructure besides improving the data management in the P2P system. We present the potential applications that could exploit the advantages our model provides. View full Article
