|Description||Real time comet software products|
Frozen Mountain specializes in developing real-time, collaborative, web-based products and solutions based on “comet” technology.
They build rich applications based on the belief that the internet is not just a place for people to find information, but is a place for people to connect, communicate and collaborate with one another, and that the best way for that to happen is to make the web browser a real time communications platform.
Their current flagship product is WebSync, the worldâ€™s first standards-compliant, IIS-compatible, real-time Comet server. WebSync allows users to push data, in real-time, over the Web without requiring plug-ins, security changes or dedicated servers.
Unlike other Comet servers, WebSync is built for Microsoftâ€™s IIS Web server, using Microsoftâ€™s .NET platform, making it fully compatible with Microsoft technology.
Also, it does not require additional servers, ports or extensive configuration like traditional Comet/Reverse Ajax solutions. Keeping in mind that traditional Comet servers have a large learning curve, WebSync was designed to be intuitive, and easy to use. It is currently used for live chat, streaming stock data, live auctions, real-time monitoring, news updates and a variety of other applications.
