In computer science, Decentralized Object Location and Routing (DOLR) is a scalable, location-independent routing technology.[1] It uses location-independent names, or aliases, for each node in the network, and it is an example of peer-to-peer networking that uses a structured-overlay system called Tapestry.[1] It was designed to facilitate large internet applications with millions of users physically distributed around the globe and using a variety of wireless and wired interfaces, specifically in situations where a traditional unstructured network of popular Domain name system servers would fail to perform well.[1]
