Kaazing products power the Living Web – the dynamic, real-time, interactive, collaborative online world that has organically evolved into the norm. Building on the HTML5 WebSocket standard and extending WebSocket functionality to any browser or protocol, Kaazing products enable instantaneous, full-duplex delivery of content back and forth between any browser or mobile device and any backend service.
The Kaazing product family is built on the Kaazing Platform, which provides a unified architecture for write once, use everywhere application development that can save vast amounts of both time and money in developing and deploying Rich Internet Applications.
Whether exchanging content with mobile devices, browsers or other servers, the Kaazing Platform delivers the highest scalability, security and performance available in the market today.
The legacy Web, built around the static HTTP protocol, is a poor platform for Rich Internet Applications.
The legacy Web was never designed to support “live” communication between backend servers and Web clients, so real-time behavior can only be simulated using complex, costly and bandwidth-guzzling workarounds such as Comet, Reverse Ajax, long polling, or Data Push.
Another critical failing of the legacy Web is that it does not “speak” enterprise back-end protocols such as JMS, XMPP, AMQP, or any of the myriad custom formats at the heart of modern business processes. Every data stream flowing between a back-end server and a Web client must continuously be translated from its native protocol into HTTP and back again by cumbersome application server middleware. This increases cost, complexity and latency while degrading performance and scalability.
The Kaazing Platform solves these problems by delivering native real-time communication over the Web and a unified architecture with support for all browsers, mobile clients, and protocols.
