Business to consumer is expected to be one of the fastest growing segments of electronic commerce. One important and challenging problem in such context, is the satisfaction of user expectations about the Quality of Service (QoS) provided when applications are deployed on a large scale. In this paper, we will examine the use of dynamic QoS management techniques in combination with replication at the various architectural levels of an electronic commerce application.
