The corporate network is often used for sharing information among the participating companies and facilitating collaboration in a certain industry sector where companies share a common interest. It can effectively help the companies to reduce their operational costs and increase the revenues. However, the inter-company data sharing and processing poses unique challenges to such a data management system including scalability, performance, throughput and security. In this paper, the authors present BestPeer++, a system which delivers elastic data sharing services for corporate network applications in the cloud based on BestPeer a Peer-To-Peer (P2P) based data management platform.
