This is a good weekend read: Business 2.0 editor Eric Schonfield reports about privat P2P offerings like Allpeers and Pando. Schonfield focuses heavily on the business side, but somehow fails to mention the fact that P2P architecture is much cheaper than a server-based approach.

From the article:

"Every day YouSendIt, for instance, transfers more than 30 terabytes of files among its members - the equivalent of the contents of about 1,000 laptop computers. MediaMax, which is operated by a San Diego company called Streamload, sends 3 million files among its members daily and stores 650 terabytes of their data."
