In this paper, we introduce Systematic P2P Aided Cache Enhancement or SPACE, a new collaboration scheme among clients in a computer cluster of a high performance computing facility to share their caches with each other. The collaboration is achieved in a distributed manner, and is designed based on peerto-peer computing model. The objective is to provide (1) a decentralized solution, and (2) a near optimal performance with reasonably low overhead. Simulation results are given to demonstrate the
