1. SPECIAL FEATURE - Executive ASP Panel Discussion
==================================================
ASP Island is proud to announce Round Two of the World's first web-based ASP
panel discussion. This on-going series is designed to address the issues,
concerns and objections that potential customers are expressing about the
Application Service Provider model. The ASP Industry Consortium and other
leading research organizations have identified the three most commonly
expressed customer concerns:

1) Security
2) Performance and Reliability
3) Support and Responsiveness

In Round Two, we have focused on the performance and reliability issues and
we have asked all of our panelists to answer a series of questions that were
derived from ASP Island visitor questions. Below you will find a summary of
the questions along with links to responses.


==================================================
2. Panel Question:  Application Performance:
==================================================
In the ASP model, by definition, applications are executed on centralized
servers. From your experience, how well do applications perform in this
model (compared to applications running on the local desktop client)? Is
there a significant application performance penalty when you move to an ASP
model?

==================================================
3. Panel Question:  Server Performance:
==================================================
Since the server (or server farm) is providing services for all employees of
a customer (and possibly the employees of other customers as well), how do
you design your data center to ensure that these resources do not become
congested bottlenecks?

==================================================
4. Panel Question:  Network Performance:
==================================================
How much does the network generally slow down application performance, and
what ways do you have of minimizing this problem?
Link to responses:
http://www.aspisland.com/panel/answers.asp?q=PA45050Q3


==================================================
5. Panel Question:  Public vs. Private Network:
==================================================
Most ASPs are deploying applications via the web, which is a low cost,
globally accessible network. The problem with the web, or any public network
for that matter, is reliability and predictable performance. On the other
hand, the problem with a private network is significant additional cost and
restricted access. What do you recommend to your customers, and how do you
address these concerns?
Link to responses:
http://www.aspisland.com/panel/answers.asp?q=PA45050Q4


==================================================
6. Panel Question:  Network and Systems Reliability:
==================================================
There are many potential single points of failure within the network, and
building complete fault tolerant systems can be cost prohibitive (if not
impossible). How do you achieve the level of network and systems reliability
that customers are demanding, while providing your services at a price
customers are willing to pay?
Link to responses:
http://www.aspisland.com/panel/answers.asp?q=PA45050Q5


==================================================
7. Panel Question:  Problem Applications:
==================================================
Are there specific applications or types of applications that do not lend
themselves to the ASP model? If so, please provide examples and why they are
a problem. When a customer's applications fall into this category, do you
have a solution for them - or do you recommend that they use a traditional
computing model?
Link to responses:
http://www.aspisland.com/panel/answers.asp?q=PA45050Q6


==================================================
8. Panel Question:  Application Prioritization:
==================================================
Do you have a way of prioritizing ASP services above less important
functions that share the network (Internet browsing, e-mail, etc.), thus
providing more predictable response levels?
