CloudTracker: Tracking Cloud Services for Accelerating Peer-to-Peer Content Distribution

Large-scale content distribution on today's Internet primarily operates in two modes: cloud-based content distribution, which relies on "Cloud servers" (e.g., servers in data centers or web hosting farms, or conventional web servers) that are located closer to the "Core" Internet (i.e., within the cloud); peer-to-peer content distribution that relies on a large number of user controlled end-hosts that are located on the "Edge" of the Internet and collectively form a peer swarm. Both modes have inherent advantages and disadvantages in terms of manageability, costs, scalability, and so forth.
