"Iron Man" Release Brings Down Paramount's Servers

oedneil other methods of distribution? (283 comments)

Maybe they could have avoided this if they used a method other than HTTP to download content. Maybe where they host the whole file first, and share it with other clients? Each client could pass along ("seed"?) pieces to each other until everyone peers had the entire file. It would be way less server intensive for Paramount. Any ideas?
