GridTorrent is an implementation of the popular BitTorrent protocol designed to interface and integrate with well-defined and deployed Data Grid components and protocols (e.g. GridFTP, RLS). Just like BitTorrent, GridTorrent is based on peer-to-peer techniques, that allow clients to download files from multiple sources while uploading them to other users at the same time, rather than obtaining them from a central server. By dividing files into fragments, GridTorrent can combine the best out of the two protocols:

  • It exploits BitTorrent's peer and fragment selection , thus providing an optimized data transfer service.
  • It takes advantage of the striped version of GridFTP protocol, as it has the ability to directly communicate with GridFTP servers, thus being backwards compatible.
