Cloud computing has gained popularity in both research and industrial communities. Cloud users can acquire computing resources on a need basis, achieving on demand scalability. Cloud providers can maximize resource utilizations of datacenters, increasing their return on investments. While cloud systems are usually hosted in large datacenters and are centrally managed, other types of cloud architectures can be imagined. In this paper the authors describe the design and prototype implementation of a fully decentralized, P2P cloud.
