Push Technology announced new features of its real-time messaging solutions, Diffusion and Reappt, including JSON/binary delta streaming and enhanced information security.
Push Technology’s delta streaming feature provides clients only the differences between old and new data, rather than providing the entire JSON payload – limiting the need to send markup that isn’t changing from one message to the next. Delta streams greatly reduce the bandwidth requirements and latency, offering up to 90% data efficiency improvement. In addition, developers can continue to integrate with existing JSON objects natively, making it fast and easy to add binary delta streaming to any application.
Piper continued, “Calculating and sending differences between data objects for efficiency is common for file transfer protocols, but is rare for message-oriented middleware and real-time messaging providers. Push Technology is well placed to take advantage of this technique due to our stateful streaming foundation and data-centric approach.”
The latest features also include role-based access control, offering granular management for each data resource. The configurable topic-scoped permissions and session properties allow backend developers to enable application, user and data level controls across data access. Organizations gain highly configurable security and effective data flow governance helping to defend against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, modification, inspection, recording or destruction of data.
Sean Bowen, Push Technology CEO said, “Our realtime messaging solutions, Diffusion 5.7 and Reappt, deliver huge benefits to developers and enterprise architects. End user experience is improved with the addition of JSON delta streaming because applications perform faster and more efficiently. The reduction in data transferred ensures that web and mobile applications offer resilient performance as users move around and between different networks.”
Diffusion 5.7 is available now. Reappt is available at IBM Bluemix or IBM Cloud.
