NET Core is an open-source cross-platform software framework that can be used to build high-performing and scalable applications for devices, cloud, and IoT. Many companies started migration of their existing server ASP.NET applications and web services from .NET Framework to .NET Core.
First Line Software’s software developers have broad technological experience and expertise with using open source technologies to develop and deploy software, so First Line Software has long ago recognized the technical advantages of .NET Core.
First and most importantly, there is an opportunity to reduce the cost of ownership by switching from expensive enterprise-licensed to open-source software components. In particular, using .NET Core allows to deploy solutions utilizing open-source software such as Linux, Kestrel, Nginx, etc.
At the same time, you get access to modern, mature approaches for automated deployment, provisioning and scaling containers based on Docker/Kubernetes. It equips you with best practices for DevOps automation without cloud vendor lock-in. As a result, there is more freedom in future development of the application.
After launching the second version of .NET Core, developers finally have Core-counterparts of all widely utilized technologies from the .NET stack such as EntityFramework. This is crucial as it allows for migration of the major pieces of server-side applications instead of re-developing them. It not only does it reduce transition efforts tremendously, it allows staged migrations, where core components are co-existing with old .net pieces, with deployment to the Linux containers as the final step.
