San Francisco—June 13, 2012—PubNub, the cloud service that enables real-time applications on every device, today announced that it surpassed 1 million messages per second (MPS) across PubNub’s global cloud while maintaining latencies under 50 milliseconds.

PubNub’s ability to power real-time apps and websites for a massive scale of users was proven twice this week, enabling nationwide voting and sentiment analytics apps during the E3 conference, as well as throughout the HumbleBundle live commerce launch. In the last week alone, PubNub pushed billions of real-time messages simultaneously to tens of millions of unique IP addresses, delivering real-time data synchronization to mass audiences around the world.
