Is it compulsory that we need to have IIS to deploy asp.net applications?

To my knowledge i just know that Asp.net development server serves the job of IIS to execute the website where the website is stored in the harddrive.

please clarify.

IIS is a web server (but not the only available server) for hosting ASP.NET web applications. ASP.NET is an ISAPI extension under the Web server. When a Web server receives a request, it examines the file-name extension of the requested file, determines which ISAPI extension should handle the request, and then passes the request to the appropriate ISAPI extension.

We can call IIS (Internet Information Services) a powerful Web server that helps us creating highly reliable, scalable and manageable infrastructure for Web application which runs on Windows Server 2003. IIS helps development center and increase Web site and application availability while lowering system administration costs. It also runs on Windows NT/2000 platforms and also for above versions. With IIS, Microsoft includes a set of programs for building and administering Web sites, a search engine, and support for writing Web-based applications that access database. IIS also called http server since it process the http request and gets http response.
