Standing for peer-to-peer, this is a distributed application architecture that is designed to partition tasks and workloads between peers.
In this model peers are equally privileged and form a peer-to-peer network of nodes.
The way it works is by peers making a portion of their resources, such as processing power, disk storage or network bandwidth, directly to other network participants, without the need for central coordination by servers or stable hosts.
