ASP.NET supports the option of managing session state out-of-process using a Windows service called the ASP.NET state service. The System.Web.SessionState.StateRuntime class is used by unmanaged code in this service to manage session data. This class supports the .NET Framework infrastructure implementation of the ASP.NET state service and is not intended be used directly from your code.
The ASP.NET state service is not the default method of ASP.NET session-state management; ASP.NET supports an in-process management of session state by default. It also supports a second out-of-process option that manages session state in a Microsoft SQL Server database and enables custom session-state management solutions. For more information about session-state storage options, see Session-State Modes.
