Executive Summary

This paper presents a clustered peer-to-peer system as a resource organization structure for web-service hosting platforms where service quality such as response time and service availability are provided with assurance. The peer-to-peer organization allows integration of autonomous resources into a single platform in a scalable manner. In clustered peer-to-peer systems, nodes are organized into clusters based on some proximity metric, and a distributed hash table overlay is created among the clusters. This organization enables lightweight techniques for load balancing among different clusters, which is found to be essential for providing response time guarantees.
