    We discuss the peer-to-peer middleware architecture for developing grid applications. We present the key issues in building services for large-scale distributed systems. Our approach of developing a replication service using a scalable, reconfigurable shared-object space realized over two-layer P2P architecture appears unique. However, we need to benchmark the platform to test the performance. Als... View full abstract»
