WCF - Many Concurrent Users - Windows service or IIS 7
Posted on 2011-09-06
I'm potentially creating a very large application, which exposes multiple services using netTcpBinding over the internet. I've chosen this binding, since speed is very important.
There could potentially be hundreds of concurrent users.
I'm not sure whether a Windows Service or IIS7 would be the best choice. From what I understand, IIS would be the easiest to manage. Will a host running from a Windows service effectively handle the load?
Also, what would be the most advisable security measure? This service would be publically available and secured via username and password.
