Recent research has shown that one can use Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs) to build scalable, robust and efficient applications. One question that is often left unanswered is that of simplicity of implementation and deployment. In this paper, we explore a case study of building an application for which ease of deployment dominated the need for high performance. The application we focus on is Place Lab, an end-user positioning system. We evaluate whether it is feasible to use DHTs as andoi:10.1145/1080091.1080104 dblp:conf/sigcomm/ChawatheRRLSH05 fatcat:og7c6y2qgjdq3gu7smu5tarfxa
