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.”
During the past four months we've seen not one but two well known real-time search engines disappear. First there was OneRiot, which in October 2010 decided to focus on advertising. More recently, Collecta closed it's real-time search engine and API to focus on alternative real-time products. Digging further into real-time search offerings you will also discover that crowdeye has also decided to pull its real-time search engine. This now appears to leave Topsy, and of course Google as the main players focusing on building a real-time search destination. Does this trend signal the end for all real-time search engines or just that their focus has been wrong?
