1 Introduction and Architecture
Large­scale distributed services such as content distribu­
tion networks, peer­to­peer storage, distributed games,
and scientific applications, have recently received sub­
stantial interest from both researchers and industry. At
the same time, shared distributed platforms such as Plan­
etLab [2] and the Grid [6] have become popular envi­
ronments for evaluating and deploying such applications.
Assuming node and/or network characteristics on such
platforms are heterogeneous, and that the user has a moti­
vation (economic, social, or due to the performance prop­
erties of her application) to use a subset of the nodes, a
practical difficulty in the use of such large­scale infras­
tructures centers around locating an appropriate subset of
the system to host a service, computation, or experiment.
