Peer-to-Peer Meets Authoritative Control: CTO Stephen Blum
Earlier this year, PubNub CTO Stephen Blum presented “A New Development Model for Real-time Apps: Peer-to-Peer meets Authoritative Control,” at the HTML5 Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. Blum demonstrated the capabilities of using PubNub to build real-time applications, and specifically focused on the using PubNub as a secure client on client global data stream network.
A Secure Global Mesh
Blum covered how to sync data from client-to-client without hindering your choice of technology or data storage. With PubNub, you can easily utilize your existing (or new) business rules and run code safely behind closed firewalls by changing your Controller to take advantage of your mesh network. Essentially, you’re transforming your server into a referee, or sideline arbiter.
Blum also announced the release of Access Manager, server-less action control for your app. Access Manager allows you to manage granular permissions for your real-time apps and data. Feel free to check out our documentation on PubNub Security as well.
