Kaazing is the leading company focused on enabling the living web, the nearly ubiquitous real time, interactive, collaborative applications that have become the norm. Kaazing's founders played a key role in defining the WebSocket standard and the Kaazing platform is the world's only enterprise solution for full-duplex, high-performance communication over the Web using the HTML5 WebSocket standard. Based in Mountain View, CA, Kaazing is privately held; some of its customers and partners include Informatica, TIBCO, and a variety of financial, ecommerce, and entertainment companies.
Kaazing's WebSocket platform solves a fundamental problem facing the Web today. The Web's architecture was originally developed in the 1990's and was designed to handle communication in one direction at a time, much like a telegraph system. Over the years, this architecture has remained essentially unchanged though it is has tried to keep up with evolving requirements.
The Kaazing WebSocket platform builds on that basic WebSocket specification in HTML5, but it includes enterprise-class features such as cross-browser support, high availability, failover, and load balancing support. The Kaazing platform is the foundation of an ecosystem that enables future uses of real time, dynamic, living Web applications that weren't possible until now.
