n this chapter, we propose a new approach for content delivery services by meshing together the best of grid computing and peer-to-peer (P2P) computing. The goal is to design a secure, reliable, and scalable system for efficient and fast delivery of content. The system consists of a combination of nondedicated servers and peers to provide the proposed service. We describe the challenges of designing such a system and discuss possible solutions and trade-offs. We detail the necessary interlacing of grid and P2P feature to achieve the goal. We present a prototype that is built based on the proposed approach.
