Abstract: Traditionally, the computing systems are usually running by a small number of powerful servers but there is high tendency to implement that platform via the co-operation of a large number of less powerful computers. The reason for the move from centralized hosting to decentralized collaboration is that Peer-to-Peer (P2P) architecture can unlock the potential of unused processing power, provide unlimited storage and most importantly eliminate single point of failure. The P2P technology is not yet a reality because there is no standard platform for peer-topeer communication. The objective of my project is to build a P2P framework from a proposed Binding-oriented and Expandable Exchange (BEE) architecture, which mainly focuses on two areas: discovery and collaboration. The architecture gives up the use of complex lookup algorithms but comes out with a simpler solution - bind the peers as an efficient structure so that discovery and coordination among peers can be as simple as directories lookup in file system.
