          PubNub is my goto solution for when I want to use sockets at scale. They have redundant data centers in 14 regions with 99.999% SLA allowing me to build realtime apps for any platform. Also Stephen (PubNub CTO) is Awesome!

          Using websockets is something, scaling a message pipeline to thousands of concurrent connections is something else.

          I trust PubNub with what it does best, and use it as zerotoherojs.com ’s messaging pipeline.

          With PubNub, I have one less problem to think about.
