Realtime Updates

Realtime Updates

From mapping, geotracking and dispatch, to broadcasting alerts and up-to-the-millisecond updates, keep everyone, and everything realtime.

When something happens in the real world, it’s reflected in your app. Broadcasting push notifications, tracking location on a map, or changing a stock price, realtime updates drive engagement and retention. Deliver up-to-the-millisecond updates with PubNub.

PubNub Functions extends the capabilities of mapping, visualization and alert technology, allowing you to route, filter, transform, augment, aggregate, and act on your data while it’s being streamed over PubNub. Process the data, and carry out an action based on it, no additional servers required. The serverless computing happens in the network.

“Not to sound too much like a fanboy here, but I would tell anyone looking to add realtime to go to PubNub. Don’t try to ‘roll your own.’ Trying to roll your own would be the equivalent of, ‘Gosh, I want to build a website, so why don’t I go build a HTTP server.’ Whatever monthly cost associated with PubNub will be far less than trying to build your own and maintain it. PubNub has already solved this for you.”
