A large number of Peer-To-Peer (P2P) networks have been introduced in the literature since their popular advent in the late 1990s. In particular, structured P2P overlays have gained much attention since 2001. They are noted mainly for their theoretical properties such as balancing of communication, storage and processing load, and elegance of design. While unstructured P2P networks may have received much public attention for their file-sharing utility, they are not suitable for most other applications as they do not provide guarantees of any kind. In particular, existing data may not always be retrievable in unstructured P2P networks even in optimal operating conditions.
