The holy grail of communication on the Internet has been to allow peer-to-peer communication without the requirement of any centralized servers or services. A peer-to-peer approach offers some key advantages over a centralized server approach:
- Greater network resilience -- peers can continue to function independent of servers and can operate even if servers are down - Increased privacy and security -- peers communicate directly thus the data is not centralized in one location where it can be spied upon by corporations, governments, 3rd parties or hackers. - Decreased cost -- without the need of servers, the cost to host, administer, store and relay data is reduced substantially - Scalability -- a peer to peer network doesn't require servers to scale as the peers can operate amongst themselves.
