P2P is Always Faster
Resilio’s technology offers the fastest delivery time across a broad array of network speeds common to the modern Enterprise. Our products combine peer to peer, rsync-like delta encoding, and WAN Optimization, three of the most powerful data transmission technologies, into one single solution.
The Early Internet
The early Internet was predominantly a peer to peer system. It was a network populated with academics and researchers, and computers connected to this network were largely equal in that each contributed as much information as they received.
Peer to Peer Systems
Peer to peer systems are fundamentally different. In these systems, every “consumer” is also a “producer.” Using the language of the client server model, each participant is both “client” and “server”. In this way peer to peer systems become organically scalable. As more demand emerges for any content, so does more supply. As demand grows, the system becomes incredibly fault tolerant and actually gets faster, in sharp contrast to the client server model, which gets noticeably slower, and more fragile under the same circumstances.
To summarize this section, peer to peer has several advantages:
- It is faster
- It is more robust
- It reduces the load on the server
- It’s an efficient use of infrastructure
