Representational state transfer(REST) is an abstraction of the architecture of world wide web. REST is an architectural style to design networked application.REST makes communication between remote computers easy by using the simple HTTP protocol which supports for CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) operations on the server.

For an example, you have to build a Web Service which should be cross-functional and should be able to be consumed by any client. Traditional Web Services in .NET have to be consumed using a proxy.
