Peer to Peer – P2P

August 17, 2007

Peer to peer, or P2P, involves two or more computers communicating with each other without a central server in between. Peer to peer is often referred to in the context of music file sharing (such as MP3s) between computer users. However it is also useful for business as it has particular benefits – for example, P2P can use the combined bandwidth of the computers involved, and it is not reliant on a central server (which could fail).
