Do we need application server?


We are not using any separate application server as we are using IIS 5.0 because IIS is designed to be both web server and application server. We are planning to upgrade from classic asp to As we are also using some third party softwares which need to be installed inthe webserver, I start wondering whether we have separate application server where we can install our all third party softwares without disturbing the web server.

is this approach needed? or any other better suggestion?

Thanks in advance

I'd say: no don't bother.

I think the only reason you might want to is for more flexible deployment.
