Streamdata.io is a french software company based in the Alps. We provide a Proxy-as-a-Service solution based on Web standards, that turns any API into a real-time stream of updates without requiring any server-side code.
All APIs expose “live” data that can change often: content can be added or updated. When content is changing frequently, polling the API on a regular basis is not a satisfying solution anymore: the data may have changed between two polling requests. How can you remedy this problem? How can you only see the changes? How to provide the user with a real-time experience which reflects API changes? More importantly, how to achieve this in an efficient manner without wasting bandwidth usage?
Streamdata.io allows you to easily bring a viable real-time solution to your applications. You only need to call the proxy, and it will take care of everything else:
- polling APIs to reduce the server load, which will prevent scalability issues.
- caching responses dynamically to improve response time: as long as a user is active for an API, the cache stays alive.
- sending only incremental updates, thanks to Server-Side-Event, to reduce bandwidth usage and costs.
With a real-time experience, users stay emotionally connected to the app, typically doubling their dwell time.
