Kaazing Launches Its Platform in the Amazon Cloud

The Kaazing's WebSocket Gateway HTML5 Edition is now available globally in Amazon's seven regions

"As the demand for our solution has grown, bringing it to the cloud makes it accessible for all organizations, large or small, on a flexible, as-needed basis," said Jonas Jacobi, co-founder and CEO of Kaazing, as Kaazing today announced that its enterprise-class HTML5 WebSocket Platform is now available as a service on Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud).

"Our solution has already been adopted by a variety of large enterprises to develop and deploy living web applications and realize all the benefits that come with the platform," Jacobi added. The Kaazing Platform, he explained, enables real-time web communications over an “open full-duplex pipe” - a dramatic change compared to the legacy architecture that has been the foundation of all Web communications since the early 1990s.

"WebSockets upgrade the web architecture to one that works like a telephone with direct connections, rather than a telegraph system that requires a 'request and response' on each end," Jacobi noted.

"Moreover," he continued, "because Kaazing’s founding team contributed the groundbreaking HTML5 WebSocket protocol design that makes a fully connected Web possible, the Kaazing platform leverages that expertise and goes well beyond the standard’s basic capabilities."

According to Jacobi, the core benefits of using the Kaazing platform, in the cloud or otherwise, are secure and scalable, real-time web communications without the dollar- and bandwidth-cost of the infrastructure that has previously been needed to even approach live and interactive Web solutions. Today, Kaazing is being used in many industries where high-performance web communications are critical, including financial services, retail, gaming and entertainment, transportation, and mobile. Representative customers are BSkyB, Cantor Fitzgerald, ITRS, Southwest Airlines, and The Limited.

The Kaazing WebSocket Gateway HTML5 Edition is now available globally in Amazon's seven regions as EC2 DevPay AMIs.

"Kaazing in the cloud delivers very high performance, cost-effective messaging from the backend, over the Web, to any desktop and mobile devices – regardless of the browser being used," said Jacobi. He added that customers can be up and running quickly and easily, while retaining complete control of security and the environment.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down.

Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
