BitTorrent Seeks Commercial Legitimacy

By Deane Barker on October 9, 2007

BitTorrent jumps into enterprise market with content delivery service: This is exciting. P2P is too cool of a technology to be burdened by the perception that it’s just for pirates and punks.

Peer-to-peer company BitTorrent is set to announce on Tuesday morning the availability of a new enterprise content delivery product, BitTorrent DNA. Designed for companies that use streaming video, large downloads or games over the Web, the launch of BitTorrent DNA marks yet another conscious move by the San Francisco-based software brand to move beyond its roots as the creator of file-sharing protocol that became nearly synonymous with digital piracy over the past few years.
