Abstract: In the early 2000’s, when data used to be of simple structure and small size, the client- server architecture handled the sharing and storage of data pretty efficiently. But as the technology progressed, the data became more and more complex and huge in size which led to load on servers for storing and sharing the data. Here, the P2P network architecture comes into picture where the peers could communicate and share the data without any centralized server. The basic idea behind the proposal of this system is the combined use of segmented file transfer on P2P network. This makes it possible to download a single file from multiple peers at the same time. Moreover, it also includes a synchronized server module for efficient storage and updating data more efficiently on the servers.
This paper presents a system in which data transfer and storage system uses file downloading based on peer-to-peer network architecture. It’s the software developed for sharing/downloading huge data files and storing important data efficiently. It’s very convenient to share data using this system as the data is spread across the peer-to-peer network. The synchronized servers provide reliable data storage for any file format. All the peers present in the network communicate to other peers using the information present in the tracker. Tracker is responsible for maintaining the peers in the whole network.
