Six Reasons to Build Your Real-Time App with Echo
High Volume & Velocity
Echo StreamServer can digest and process 100s of activity items per second. It can also serve real-time streams of data to thousands or millions of users. It is capable of scaling to serve your real-time needs!
Echo StreamServer does not just route activity data to users. It stores it permanently and forever. Users can visit old streams and see what happened days, weeks or months ago. Also items can be annotated with additional metadata after initial creation.
Echo StreamServer uses the open standard Activity Streams for all data in and out. The data is yours to keep. Export it at any time and change solutions at will. We also use open standards (like OAuth, PortableContacts, Backplane & OPML) wherever possible.
Items stored in and returned from Echo StreamServer are not just in a flat list. They are stored in a tree. This means that when you request articles, you will also get their comments, or comments you will get their replies and so on.
With Echo StreamServer, buy the subscription pack that works for you and get started immediately. There are no big penalties for going over your limit, simply pay the pro-rata rate.
Using Echo StreamServer means you also have access to a range of pre-built apps and best-of-breed components to make your products richer and quicker to deploy.
