Replication techniques in data grid are widely used to improve data access time, to reduce bandwidth consumption and to increase fault tolerance. A replication technique is highly dependent upon architecture of grid. Many replications strategies are employed by some major topologies used in data environment such as tree, multi-tier or Peer-To-Peer (P2P) architecture. In this paper the authors focus on dynamic replication strategy in peer to peer architecture. This technology has recently experienced a large development in the file sharing area and is used strongly by the large public.
