Influxis Launches Union Cloud 2.0, the Next Generation of Its Cloud-based Application Development Platform.

Influxis offers the latest Union Platform 2.0 to its cloud network, featuring the new server clustering API and JavaScript framework.

Santa Clarita, CA(18 Sep 2012)

Influxis, a premier interactive streaming cloud company, announced its launch of Union Cloud 2.0 today. This next generation of the platform-as-a-service for Union Platform 2.0 is specially designed for scalable real-time collaboration applications. Union Cloud`s key new features are Union Server Clustering and a full-featured JavaScript framework, Orbiter.

The server clustering API easily connects multiple Union Server instances together, massively increasing the concurrent connection capacity into the millions. With Union Server`s clustering,  developers can scale an application by simply making a list of servers, sending a remote event, and responding to that event.

Orbiter provides a simple set of JavaScript components for connected-application development. It includes connection reliability, user groups, data sharing, user awareness, spectation, user accounts, synchronized user lists, group-and-private messaging, filtering, saving data to a data source, handling server-push data feeds, and security role management. Union 2.0 also provides server-side JavaScript modules for those who prefer to code in JavaScript on the server, offering a comprehensive end-to-end JavaScript solution.

Union Platform founder, Colin Moock, said, “This latest release makes adding real-time connectivity so easy that it seems almost absurd to make an application without it. From a business perspective, and for the quality of the user experience, it just doesn’t make sense – not when the tools now exist to add collaboration so effortlessly. We’re finally seeing real-time connectivity play a fundamental role in everything we build, right down to the testing and administration tools.”

Derek Clayton, Union Platform co-founder, added, “Union 2.0’s ease-of-use and massive scale redefine what you can even dream about. The leap from small-scale success to extreme popularity is a fragile time in an application’s growth. If a technology doesn’t scale, developers are forced to rebuild from scratch, and that can kill a project. Union 2.0’s new scalability effectively removes that growth risk.”

Each Union Cloud account comes with a dedicated pre-loaded Union Platform virtual machine for immediate use in the cloud, as well as 24/7 expert support. Developers can utilize Union Cloud to build multiuser meeting applications, collaborative editing tools, live surveys, real-time chats, virtual social worlds, massively multiplayer online games, topic-based news feeds, live interactive sports broadcasts, and many other cloud-connected applications. More information is available at www.unioncloud.io.

About USER1 Subsystems Corporation
