As the legacy Web has quickly morphed into today’s Living Web, users have become more demanding of online applications, insisting on real-time information delivery, fully interactive user experiences, and a lot of speed. To facilitate the increasing demand for the Living Web, Kaazing has launched a new private PaaS (platform as a service) offering of its high-performance web communications platform that is optimized for rapid development and easy deployment. Kaazing’s platform makes it possible for Web applications to deliver any data in real-time with enterprise security, high-availability, reliability, and the ability to serve as many users as needed at any time.

To date, Kaazing has seen adoption and deployment of its original enterprise platform, the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway, by companies in financial services, gaming, media, ecommerce and retail. Representative Kaazing customers are BSkyB, Cantor Fitzgerald, E3 Insider, HSBC, ITRS, Southwest Airlines, and Limited Brands.

“Our customers see the rich and interactive ‘living web’ as their future,” said John Donnelly III, Kaazing executive vice president. “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.”

The Kaazing Private PaaS is a web-enabled full-duplex, real-time data solution based on the new HTML5 WebSocket standard. It is a fully managed PaaS solution that provides companies with the freedom to communicate any data, at any time, to any device, anywhere using their client technology of choice - JS, Java, Flash, .NET/Silverlight, and others. With Kaazing’s Private PaaS, companies can run a robust and secure enterprise grade and full-duplex real-time data service in the Cloud virtually instantaneously without any infrastructure investment, setup, or IT management.

Three examples of applications that can benefit from the new version of Kaazing are:

  • The Kaazing platform allows financial services providers to offer the fastest and most reliable real-time connection for clients over the Web. In the past, in order to provide a fast connection and the level of security required for a financial transaction, a financial services company would have had to create private networks for each of its customers – which are expensive, cumbersome, and require a lot of support. Of particular note in the new version of the Kaazing platform is the ability to create customized, real-time notifications to ensure that sophisticated transactions happen in an instant.
  • In gaming, one of the newest frontiers has been to provide real-time responsiveness without having to create separate, specialized player-networks for players. That’s what the Kaazing platform enables users to see and now they can enable these applications instantly through our PaaS solution.
  • One of the most important aspects of retail is real-time responsiveness to customer needs and interests. When a customer is onsite at a retail store, the store can process, in real-time, the customer’s interests and customize sales offers which are sent directly to his or her mobile device. This has significant business implications because retailers can seize new sales opportunities immediately and create new revenue as the customer walks in their store.

The Kaazing Private PaaS is available now.
