Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability — Home Page

Send feedback to Scale@microsoft.com

IT professionals are under increasing pressure not only to execute design and development initiatives that meet functional specifications, but also to release fast, responsive, and scaleable applications. In response to the needs of architects and developers striving to meet these expectations as they build on the .NET platform, we have developed the Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability guide.

This guide reflects an evolutionary way of thinking about the software development cycle. Fundamental to the guide's design is a fresh commitment to determining performance objectives as part of the early stages in the design and architecture of the application. Building these parameters into the design from the beginning prevents you from having to spend unnecessary time and resources addressing performance and scalability deficits later in the life cycle.

The design and process principles outlined in Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability offer architects an early opportunity to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). Costs are contained not only by planning carefully in the development phase, but also by delivering robust and scalable applications that harness the power of .NET.

The guide promotes a holistic vantage point that encompasses the technological considerations of a project, the roles and contributions of key people involved in the development process, and the work processes through which key players meet their project's performance objectives.

The guidance draws upon Microsoft's internal experience in developing on the .NET platform, and also consolidates the contributions of external experts in performance improvement, customers, and others in the IT community.

Organization of the guide enables you to focus on a specific process or technology, or to use the guidance in top-level decision-making as you design high-performance applications. The guide is designed to be used as a reference or to be read from beginning to end. Guidance supports top-level decision making at the early stages of a new project as well as topic-specific content to help IT professionals fine-tune and improve the performance of existing.

We are confident that Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability will help you deliver software to your customer that is reliable, cost-effective, and attractive to end users and administrators.

Sincerely,
