Novasky: Cinematic-Quality VoD in a P2P Storage Cloud

In this paper, the authors present Novasky, a real-world Video-on-Demand (VoD) system capable of delivering cinematic-quality video streams to end users. The foundation of the Novasky design is a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) storage cloud, storing and refreshing media streams in a decentralized fashion using local storage spaces of end users. They present the design objectives in Novasky, and how these objectives are achieved using a collection of unique mechanisms, with respect to caching strategies, coding mechanisms, and the maintenance of the supply-demand relationship when it comes to media availability in the P2P storage cloud.
