Kaazing has released an update to the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway web infrastructure software based on the HTML5 WebSocket standard.
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway extends the use of TCP-based messaging format to any browser, delivering high performance bi-directional communication over the Web. Unlike older, non-standard technologies that rely on “polling” or “long-polling,” and utilize complex, inefficient techniques that result in higher latency and sky-rocketing server infrastructure costs, Kaazing WebSocket Gateway reduces unnecessary network traffic and is capable of supporting over one million concurrent users per gateway.
“Kaazing WebSocket Gateway is the first and only WebSocket infrastructure solution that enables large and small businesses to harness the power of HTML5 for dynamic multiplatform application deployment,” said Jonas Jacobi, CEO of Kaazing.
