ASP.NET Core Application Architecture
NET Core and ASP.NET Core offer several advantages over traditional .NET development. You should
use .NET Core for your server applications if some or all of the following are important to your
Use of microservices
Use of Docker containers
High performance and scalability requirements
Side-by-side versioning of .NET versions by application on the same server
Traditional .NET applications can and do support many of these requirements, but ASP.NET Core and
.NET Core have been optimized to offer improved support for the above scenarios.
More and more organizations are choosing to host their web applications in the cloud using services
like Microsoft Azure. You should consider hosting your application in the cloud if the following are
important to your application or organization:
Reduced investment in data center costs (hardware, software, space, utilities, server
Flexible pricing (pay based on usage, not for idle capacity)
Improved app mobility; easily change where and how your app is deployed
Flexible capacity; scale up or down based on actual needs
Building web applications with ASP.NET Core, hosted in Azure, offers many competitive advantages
over traditional alternatives. ASP.NET Core is optimized for modern web application development
practices and cloud hosting scenarios. In this guide, you’ll learn how to architect your ASP.NET Core
applications to best take advantage of these capabilities.
