ASP .NET Core 8 is even more performant!
IIS used to be the default for running ASP .NET websites, but it only runs on Windows.
Then Kestrel, the small cross-platform web server voor ASP .NET Core took over.
Its competing with the fastest web servers in the world, see https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/
Every .NET version Microsoft is trying to get more performance out of Kestrel.
The improvements in .NET 7 where already big and .NET 8 brings even more to the table.
People trying out the Preview are very excited. They are experiencing less warm-up time (first request response) for there websites.
