Already there are signs that Exodus' relations with some high-profile
clients are in jeopardy. Service problems are serious enough that
they've generated high-level
tensions between Exodus and online auctioneer eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY - news)
, one of Exodus' largest and most prominent customers, according to two
people familiar
with the situation.

In the past few weeks, eBay has been in talks with several Exodus
competitors for a new contract to move a portion of its Web servers to a
new vendor, the sources
say. Exodus Chief Executive Ellen Hancock says its relationship with
eBay is in good shape. eBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove declined to say
whether it was mulling a
move of its primary Web servers but says that a top priority is to
figure out where to house a key backup system.
