This is a unique kind of network topology that describes the networking of computers without the use of a central server. Peer-to-peer networks are a popular option among those who prefer sharing files directly with each other. The system obliterates the need for a central server that is generally used for file storage.
It is now possible to put together bits of files stored across various peers on a network by using specialized software. The biggest advantage of the system is that one computer of the system will not be loaded more than its capacity when a very large file is requested from the system. It is regarded as the perfect solution to the problem of meeting the demand for the same file simultaneously by many people as hundreds of peer-to-peer computers can hold parts of the file and share the load when the request is made.
