<p>In spite of current practices and thoughts, the grid and P2P models share several features and have more in common than we perhaps generally recognize. A synergy between the two research communities, and the two computing models, could start with identifying the similarities and differences between them. Developers and users could exploit the many contact points between P2P and grid networks by recognizing P2P?s relevance to corporations and public organizations rather than viewing it as just a home computing technology. They also could exploit P2P protocols and models to face grid-computing issues such as scalability, connectivity, and resource discovery.</p>
