Ask HN: WebSockets as a Service?
1 point by yashg 10 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 3 comments
I have implemented a few projects using websockets for variety of purposes. I have implemented them in .Net and NodeJS (server side). I was wondering if there's any SAAS provider offering websockets as service so one doesn't have to run a websockets server and can just implement a client. Is there something available or is there a need for such a service?

Pusher, PubNub.
