Abstract or Description

Abstract: "Current peer-to-peer systems based on DHTs struggle with routing locality and content locality because of random node ID assignment. To address these issues, we promote the use of location-based node IDs to encode physical topology and improve routing. This gives applications explicit knowledge about and control over data locality at a coarse-grain. Applications can place content in particular regions or route towards a close replica. Schemes to address the difficulties that ensue, particularly load imbalance, are discussed."
