Santa Clara, CA, September 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- HostQuest today launched HostQuest Sphere, a scalable real-time communications platform that enables developers to focus on creating multiplayer applications in a secure environment. Utilizing the platform, HostQuest has developed and released RightNow Poker as an example of the flexibility available to a developer.
HostQuest Sphere offers a robust selection of services to which a developer may subscribe at their convenience. With the standard HostQuest platform, developers will have access to a back-end interface that allows for persistent, binary-safe connections. The platform supports server-free simulated peer-to-peer connections without requiring an open port, ensuring user security. For applications that do require server-side logic, HostQuest handles all of the danger and complexity of accepting incoming connections.
“Developing a scalable application with true real-time communication is incredibly challenging,” said Greg Heckenbach, CTO of HostQuest. “HostQuest Sphere simplifies real-time interactivity, enabling developers to focus on their product with confidence.”
“We developed RightNow Poker as a proof of concept for HostQuest Sphere,” continued Heckenbach. “We wanted to show in real practice what our platform can do. We used HTML5 exclusively for the demo; there are no images to load, everything is being generated as you need it using Canvas and WebSocket.”
HostQuest is now accepting Beta Partners on their website at www.hostquest.com.
