PAST is a large-scale, peer-to-peer archival storage utility that provides scalability, availability, security and cooperative resource sharing. Files in PAST are immutable and can be shared at the discretion of their owner. PAST is built on top of Pastry, a generic, scalable and efficient substrate for peer-to-peer applications.
