Since the success of Amazons Elastic Compute Cloud (a.k.a. EC2), the concept of cloud computing has been quickly adapted world wide, from major content providers (such as Google and Microsoft), solution providers to small business enterprise. In contrast to traditional Internet services, cloud computing provides not only storage capacity, but also computing powers. It allows end-users to access data from anywhere at anytime. It equips enterprises with IT solutions at low cost. Such computing services are supported by large data centers that may or may not located at the same location. Despite the massive computing power, storage capacity and great flexibility, cloud computing is facing challenges in sustainability, privacy, security, robustness, data migration, throughput, and many more. To address these, peer-to-peer (P2P) techniques have been proposed, e.g., in data centers , at the core as overlay network, and at the edge of the cloud. The aim of this special issue is to foster and exchange ideas on innovative work in P2P or overlay solutions for cloud computing. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit complete original papers addressing issues on P2P cloud computing including but not limited to the following topics : Disruptive or novel P2P or overlay technology for cloud computing P2P solutions for security and privacy issues in the cloud P2P solutions for storage and data migration in data centers P2P solutions for green computing and energy efficiency Overlay and P2P techniques for live streaming cloud Hybrid P2P-CND cloud systems and services New P2P-based cloud services and service federation Economics and management issues in P2P cloud systems System deployment experiments and experience Immersive P2P multiple view video communication Mobile P2P solutions for ad-hoc teleconferencing Collaborative P2P cloud-assisted computing & data aggregation P2P and overlay techniques for stored and interactive multimedia and video services Novel cloud services and applications making use of P2P and overlay technologies
