Most current e-auction systems are based on the client-server architecture. Such centralized systems provide a single point of failure and control. In contrast, peer-to-peer systems permit distributed control and minimize individual node and link failures' impact on the system. The shared-storage-based auction model described in this article decentralizes services among peers to share the required processing load and aggregates peers' resources for common use. The model is based on the principles of local computation at each peer, direct inter-peer communication, and a shared storage space.
