UsenetDHT: A Low Overhead Usenet Server [chapter]

Emil Sit, Frank Dabek, James Robertson
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Usenet-DHT distributes data using a distributed hash table. The amount of data that must be stored on each node participating in UsenetDHT scales inversely with the number of participating nodes.  ...  UsenetDHT is a system that reduces the storage and bandwidth resources required to run a Usenet server by spreading the burden of data storage across participants.  ...  Tradeoffs The primary drawback of UsenetDHT is a loss of control by individual administrators over what data (articles) are stored on and transit their machines.  ...
