Structured Peer to Peer Systems

Beehive is based on a structured peer-to-peer infrastructure. These systems provide automatic, self-managing overlay networks that can heal around failures, though may incur high lookup latencies. Beehive complements their self-organization with low-latency lookups.

Polynomial Lookup Time Systems

Constant Lookup Time Systems

These systems achieve constant hop lookups for any query distribution, though they may perform excessive replication. Beehive can achieve less than 1-hop performance with optimal replication. PlanetLab

We are grateful to the PlanetLab infrastructure for enabling us to deploy our initial prototype across the planet.
