One of the best parts about working with PubNub is that we were able to start out really simple and prove out parts of our early product and then layer in more functionality as we got into deeper product problems.
What was potentially going to be the biggest headache – in terms of implementation, infrastructure, and ops (managing a sudden burst of scale we had no experience or time to capacity plan for) – suddenly become something we could, I’m scared to say, take for granted as just working.
Using PubNub was more cost effective than trying to build this capability ourselves. We don’t have to implement, and more importantly, operate a real-time infrastructure meeting high scalability, performance and reliability requirements.
We used PubNub’s fantastic messaging service at Sportlobster to deliver real-time sports notifications from OPTA (goals, touchdowns, etc.) to ten’s of thousands of users quickly and cost-effectively. We saved around £100k in development costs and months of time. Invaluable for us at the time.
