Scientific Data Distribution Network Based on P2P Transmission Technologies

P. 123-129.
Parunakyan D., Isaev E., Ovchinnikov I. L., Dumsky D., Zaicev A. J., Barinova W.

This work studies the possibility of using a widely adopted peer-to-peer (P2P) data transmission protocol named BitTorrent for the purpose of building a data storage and distribution system that would allow numerous institutions to access vast unstructured volumes of scientic data. We discuss the practical efficiency of using this technology depending on the typical file sizes and readily available software, the ratio of read and write operations, computational power available at the tracker server, the number of mirrors and simultaneously connected clients.
