San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Echo, the leading real-time web platform provider, today announced that its flagship product, Echo StreamServer, is available in AWS Marketplace, an online store that makes it easy for customers to find, compare, and immediately start using the software and services they need to build products and run their businesses. Through this new distribution, Echo is making its real-time database available to hundreds of thousands of Amazon Web Services customers who can use Echo StreamServer to develop highly scalable, real-time social applications.
“Building scalable real-time infrastructure is no easy task,” said Khris Loux, CEO of Echo. “To keep pace with the rapidly evolving social web, developers need to focus on building the best applications possible – not re-inventing the core plumbing. Echo StreamServer enables developers to build real-time applications at lighting fast speeds. As an example, our customer USA Network went from concept to production on their Character Chatter application in 4 days using Echo’s StreamServer.”
To coincide with StreamServer’s launch in the AWS Marketplace, Echo is also announcing an exclusive new program for developers who are looking to build the next hot real-time application. Qualified developers who are accepted into the program will receive one million free real-time streams per month to be used in a production environment, along with product marketing, customer support and sales support for their applications.
“Entrepreneurial innovation is at the core of Echo’s value system,” said Ron Bouganim, VP or Corporate Development and Partnerships for Echo. “Our unique business model supports a broad ecosystem of application developers that have built their businesses on Echo. We are proud to invest in the next generation of developers who will help fuel our shared vision of evolving the static web into the real-time web.”
Echo StreamServer allows developers to submit large volumes of Activity Stream formatted items at rapid rates and store them permanently. Those items can then be retrieved using the Echo Query Language (EQL), which returns a customizable stream of search results that updates in real-time. The platform can process thousands of real-time activities per second from any data source or real-time feed and relies on two years of hardening and development to support its massive scale.
