WCF Performance Comparisons

Ken Brubaker points to a summary by Clemens Vasters of a white paper comparing various existing distributed communication technologies with WCF.  The bottom line - WCF is

  • %25 - %50 faster than ASMX
  • %25 faster than .NET Remoting
  • %100 faster - %25 slower than .NET Enterprise Services (DCOM)

Also in his summary, Clemens remarks (italics his):

For WSE 2.0/3.0 implementations, migrating them to WCF will obviously provide the most significant performance gains of almost 4x.

The performance differences alone make WCF a technology worth exploring.
