P2P Directory >  Metadata, Servers/Services as Peers > XDegrees


XDegrees is developing software that will manage the flow of metadata in Peer-To-Peer networks. CEO (and Adforce founder) Michael Tanne and co-founders Anand Rajaraman and Venky Harinarayan (also co-founders of the Junglee shopping bot company) think P2P metadata, if utilized, can be more valuable than the data itself. In an environment where information and applications will be pushed out onto the network, rather than residing on servers, the software will also provide infrastructure services such as caching, messaging, naming and routing. The platform will also enable the development of P2P applications utilizing existing web development technologies, such as Active Server Pages (ASP) and Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripts.
