Characterizing the File Hosting Service Ecosystem
2010 (English)In: Proc. ACM CoNEXT Student Workshop (CoNEXT ’10), New York, USA: ACM , 2010, 3:1-3:2 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
File Hosting Services (FHS) such as Rapidshare and Mega-upload have recently become popular. The decline of P2P file sharing has prompted various services including FHS to replace it. We propose a comprehensive multi-level characterization of the FHS ecosystem. We devise a measurement framework to collect datasets from multiple vantage points. To the best of our knowledge, this work is the first to characterize the FHS ecosystem. The work will highlight the content, usage, performance, infrastructure, and quality of service characteristics of FHS. FHS can have significant implications on Internet traffic, if these services were to supplant P2P as the dominant content sharing technology.
