Summary One of the characteristics of the current Web services is that many clients request the same or similar service from a group of replicated servers, e.g. music or movie downloading in peer-to-peer networks. Most of the time, servers are heterogeneous ones in terms of service rate. Much of research has been done in the homogeneous environment. However, there is has been little done on the heterogeneous scenario. It is important and urgent that we have models for heterogeneous server groups for the current Internet applications design and analysis. In this paper, we deploy an approximation method to transform heterogeneous systems into a group of homogeneous system. As a result, the previous results of homogeneous studies can be applied in heterogeneous cases. In order to test the approximation ratio of the proposed model to real applications, we conducted simulations to obtain the degree of similarity. We use two common strategies: random selection algorithm and Firs-Come-First-Serve (FCFS) algorithm to test the approximation ratio of the proposed model. The simulations indicate that the approximation model works well.
