HailStorm is a blanket term for a collection of Microsoft technologies, peer-to-peer related and otherwise (e-mail, instant messaging, alerts and notifications, addressbooks and Microsoft's Passport authentication technology) that were announced by Bill Gates as part of Microsoft's .NET platform. Windows XP and Office XP will ship with core elements of HailStorm built into them. The HailStorm architecture is based on SOAP and XML, using common identity, security, and data models for each of its HailStorm services so that they may be accessed from any minimally connected device.

Check out these OpenP2P.com articles about Hailstorm: Hailstorm: Open Web Services Controlled by Microsoft by Clay Shirky and Brewing a HailStorm by Rael Dornfest.
