Advantages of UDP:

1) UDP does not need the overhead required to detect reliability.
2) It does not need to maintain the unexpected deception of a data flow.
3) UDP requires less processing at the transmitting and receiving of hosts
4) It is simple to use for a network.
5) The operating system does not need to maintain UDP connections information.
Recommended use: IT is more appropriate to use it on large distributed systems where each host has to communicate with many destinations at the same time.
