Native AOT apps have faster startup time, smaller memory footprints, and can run on machines that don’t have the .NET runtime installed. Please note all the ASP.NET Core features are not currently compatible with native AOT. For instance, ASP.NET Core application types like minimal APIs, gRPC, and worker services are compatible with native AOT, while features such as MVC, Blazor S ..read more
