Your Cloud Messaging Middleware as a Service

The Problem


Scalable
message delivery over the Internet


Network latency


Regular consumer disconnections


Firewalls


Traditional enterprise messaging software assumes low
network latency and occasional disconnections. These
assumptions are true in LAN, but not for WAN (the cloud).
