Comparing P2P File Sharing Technologies

David Strom

Track: File Sharing
Date: Wednesday, November 07
Time: 4:00pm - 4:45pm
Location: Dupont

Strom evaluates a variety of P2P file-sharing technologies for corporate and individual use, based on his own tests and extensive experience with these and similar technologies.

There are various P2P file-sharing alternatives available by now. All claim to be open, extensible, minimal footprint, universal across various operating systems, and other qualities. But which one(s) really are usable, reliable, and workable solutions? Which ones are more appropriate for individuals, and which ones are more appropriate for more corporate settings? Strom evaluates a variety of P2P file-sharing technologies for corporate and individual use, based on his own tests and extensive experience with these and similar technologies.

Strom discusses whether specific P2P technologies offer something over the standard email attachments, or Internet/ftp-based file sharing solutions. He assesses whether any of these companies still be in business by the time of the conference.
