Pusher has established itself as a leading service for delivering WebSocket messages to connected clients via its simple, RESTful Pusher API. This especially suits application developers working with languages and platforms that struggle to maintain and scale persistent connections. We remove the need to roll a custom solution and work with complex and unfamiliar technologies, and ensure the benefits of a hosted service can be achieved. We've recently added support for WebHooks, which provide a different sort of real-time solution.
As much as mobile backend-as-a-service (BaaS) platforms free up developers from having to worry about the infrastructure that support their applications, they do generally come with a downside; most of them lock the developer into a particular cloud platform. With that issue in mind, FeedHenry created a namesake BaaS platform that took advantage of Node.js to create a BaaS platform that developers could deploy and ultimately move to any cloud platform of their choice.
