A Hybrid P2P Approach to Service Discovery in the Cloud
Highly scalable techniques for service discovery are key to the efficient use of Cloud resources, since the Cloud computing appears to be part of the mainstream computing in a few years. The authors embarked on a preliminary study on Cloud service discovery by adopting an unstructured P2P paradigm. They developed an efficient mechanism for routing of service requests by coupling a number of components: one-hop replication, semantic-aware message routing, topology reorganization, and super-nodes. A number of experiments were carried out that demonstrated the expected performance of the proposed P2P search scheme.
