Application Object vs Static Variable

Storing and reading a static value is faster when we compare it with the Application object because static variables do not need to look-up in a collection when you refer to them and you do not need to cast from object to a specific type.

The key reason that the Application object exists in ASP.NET is for compatibility with classic ASP code to allow easy migration of existing applications to ASP.NET.
