What Is the ASP Environment?

ATG REsource operates in an Application Service Provider (ASP) environment. This is an increasingly popular method for providing software applications to users (see chart below). In the ASP environment, ATG hosts the software on its office server and conducts daily back-ups. ATG members access and run ATG REsource through the Internet. This minimizes the need to load software on your computer. Upgrades and enhancements to ATG REsource are made automatically on ATG's servers and transitions are seamless for our members. ATG has contracted with Qwest™ to act as the host for the ATG REsource servers. Qwest provides redundant power and connectivity options in a secure facility monitored 24/7 by experienced Qwest engineers. All stored information is backed up daily to an offsite location.

If you have any questions about the ASP environment, contact the ATG Software Help Desk.
