MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Kaazing, the leading provider of live web and mobile communication and authors of HTML5 WebSocket, today announced the launch of the new Kaazing WebSocket Gateway 4.0. Through the company’s revolutionary standards-based architecture, the new platform significantly improves bandwidth utilization by up to five times, decreases latency by up to 50%, and reduces CPU utilization by up to 25% - bolstering performance and scalability. With these improvements, customers can now handle more users and improve overall user experience through faster data delivery, superior bandwidth optimization and CPU efficiencies.
“This newest release will help our clients in industries like banking and gaming reduce bandwidth by as much as five times, and decrease latency by a factor of two”
“This newest release will help our clients in industries like banking and gaming reduce bandwidth by as much as five times, and decrease latency by a factor of two,” said John Donnelly III, executive vice president of Kaazing. “For global gaming clients, this could mean a reduction from 60 millisecond latencies to 30 milliseconds, thereby enabling better user experience, more transactions and more revenue. This new release offers more features and is easier to develop, requiring almost no custom coding to integrate and stream message data. No other solution provider could surpass our newest release on bandwidth efficiencies or performance.”
The Kaazing platform delivers data more efficiently than ever without the need for custom coding, an application development approach that Kaazing has embraced since inception. The 4.0 “code free” enhancements can save companies weeks or months of work during initial deployments and ongoing maintenance of their real-time applications.
The improved bandwidth utilization is due to the new use of binary encoding and delta messaging that delivers only the net new data or message changes to clients. By doing so, Kaazing significantly reduces the data overhead by up to five times. These enhancements could represent hundreds of thousands of dollars in development, maintenance and network costs for each real-time project over its lifetime.
The new conflation feature optimizes the experience for slow clients such as mobile users. Clients receive a single message that rolls up missed messages and the latest data into one message, helping them keep up with real-time data. Similar to the bandwidth enhancements, Kaazing’s new conflation feature does not require a developer to write any custom code.
Additional key features of new Kaazing WebSocket Gateway 4.0 include:
- Identical configuration means all cluster members have the same configuration for simpler maintenance and making it easy to scale up
- Kaazing Command Center with new graphical interface for administrators to easily track, measure, and monitor key data and message delivery metrics
- Performance enhancements that reduce CPU usage up to 25%, increasing throughput for improved latency and increased numbers of users
- Last value cache allows latest data to be always available to be received by all users, no matter when they connect to the application
“For our TIBCO Enterprise Message Service (EMS) customers, the Kaazing platform, which powers our TIBCO Web Messaging (TWM) product, delivers incredible functionality,” said Denny Page, chief engineer of TIBCO. “It enables the event-driven enterprise to deliver dynamic, timely data securely to and from web and mobile.
