As our ASP.NET Web applications become more and more successful we switch our focus from adding features to performance, scale, and management. We have been in the lab studying the scaling habits of the average domestic ASP.NET solution and has emerged to discuss his findings. (No applications were actually harmed during the capture of this data.) Come and learn where ASP.NET stumbles and how to get it back on its feet. In this session we will learn about the web acceleration equation, identify common ASP.NET bottlenecks, explore solution alternatives, uncover the secret sauce, and determine a reasonable strategy for scaling ASP.NET applications.
