Abstract Current peer-to-peer storage utilities offer a convenient flat storage space, delegating the organization and presentation of data to upper layers. In reality, both applications and users typically organize data in a structured form. One such popular structure is hierarchical namespace as employed in a file system. A nave approach such as hashing the pathname of file system not only ignores locality in important operations such as file/directory lookup, but also results in uncontrollable, massive object relocations when rename on path component occurs.
