Peer-to-Peer networks are widely used to share and locate distinctive resources across the Internet. To explore this, new deployment strategies are emerging. Recently, the cloud computing has added more possibilities to it. Particularly, some applications like VoIP were proposing the creation of overlays for the localization of services based on equivalent servants (e.g., voice relays). This paper focuses on services provided by equivalent servants and models and analyzes the performance of structured overlays when used to provide such services. The authors describe that the architecture-EQUATOR chosen for the P2P network has a enormous impact on the overall performance of the service.
