P2P – Peer-to-Peer

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) refers to the shared use of files, power, bandwidth, etc., by two or more computers. A P2P network makes optimum use of all resources available across connected computers (acting as nodes) with each computer having network capabilities and responsibilities. This compares to client-server architecture, where certain machines are designated to serve other machines on the network.
