    Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) empowers .NET developers to create scalable, long-running applications and services. WF provides a programming model and execution engine for authoring distributed, asynchronous programs. WF abstracts complex code into discreet units called activities, which are composed into workflows using a rehostable visual workflow designer, allowing developers and stakeholders to concentrate on what the program accomplishes, rather than the infrastructure for thread and application state management, tracking, transactions and error handling, etc.. The resulting programs are easier to configure, manage, monitor and maintain.

  • These are two different technologies for two different purposes.

    Nevertheless, you might find the following white paper which discusses the performance of WF useful:
