peer-to-peer architecture
Last modified: Thursday, July 14, 2005 

Often referred to simply as peer-to-peer, or abbreviated P2P, a type of network in which each workstation has equivalent capabilities and responsibilities. This differs from client/server architectures, in which some computers are dedicated to serving the others. Peer-to-peer networks are generally simpler, but they usually do not offer the same performance under heavy loads.

Also see All About Peer-To-Peer Architecture in Webopedia's "Did You Know...?" section.
