Customer Spotlight

CyberHoot Awarded Badge From TrustRadius

Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Networks exist where groups or “peers” of computer systems are linked to each other through the Internet for a common purpose usually with a common application directing their use. Files can be shared directly between systems on the P2P network without the need for a central server. In other words, each computer on a P2P network becomes a file server of sorts, while also acting as a client.
