Abstract

Developing new network services in the Internet is complex and costly. This high entrance barrier has prevented new innovation in the network itself, and stuck the Internet as being mainly browser-based client/server systems. End-system based decentralized services are cheaper, but have a complexity several orders of magnitude higher than centralized systems in terms of structure and protocols. To foster development of such decentralized network services, we present the ariba framework. We show how ariba can facilitate development of end-system based decentralized services through self-organizing service overlays–flexibly deployed purely on end-systems without the need for costly infrastructure.
