Gurmeet Singh Manku and Mayank Bawa, Stanford University; Prabhakar Raghavan, Verity, Inc.
We present Symphony, a novel protocol for maintaining distributed hash tables in a wide area network. The key idea is to arrange all participants

of frequent updates and offers small average latency
with only a handful of long distance links per node.
The cost of updates when hosts join and leave is
