Kaazing, developer of "the world's only enterprise solution for full-duplex, high-performance communication over the Web," now offers its WebSocket Gateway as a PaaS offering. Its goal in producing Kaazing's product as a cloud-based solution is to offer "its high-performance web communications platform that is optimized for rapid development and easy deployment." says BusinessWire. According to Kaazing's Executive Vice President, John Donnelly III, "To ensure the immediacy their users demand, they need to be able to deliver instant data to any device -- a desktop computer to any mobile device. Our new PaaS solution does just that.”
