What is .Net Core: .NET Core is a modular, cross-platform, and open source software development framework that is used to build Windows, Web, and Mobile applications for Windows, Linux and OS X platforms. It’s the next generation of ASP.NET, developed by Microsoft
Reason why .net core is so important: In recent years, cloud deployment of solutions has become more and more important. What started out as a one vendor (Amazon AWS), has now become a fight for the pockets of enterprise and minds of developers, and Microsoft, with Azure, is racing to the top very fast. Cloud is not as simple as the desktop, cloud operates at scale and requires different kinds of thinking and technologies. Automation plays a huge part in the ecosystem of the cloud and the ‘cloud operating system’ is operated by cleverly managing and orchestrating virtual machines and containers. These systems run distributed, highly fault tolerant systems and services that are designed to operate at scale, and in many cases, are developed on top of multi-platform systems that are not as interdependent as we might have used previously.
.NET Core is first and foremost, MODULAR, MANAGED and CROSS PLATFORM. The platform is clearly built with the cloud in mind, and is initially at least targeting low level/server based systems. In tests recently .Net Core outperformed NodeJS and GO 8x – that’s really interesting and calls for some serous investigation – that kind of performance can both save money for enterprise, and also offer new opportunity for raw speed of processing.
What we are doing to support .Net Core: Sentinel LDK team is already working on it. Please get back to Technical Support for further requirement.
