Heritage Auctions selects Migratory Push Server to enhance its real-time online auction infrastructure
SEPTEMBER 14, 2010
Migratory Data Systems today announced that Heritage Auctions, the world's largest collectibles auctioneer, has selected Migratory Push Server as the foundation of its real-time infrastructure.
Heritage Auctions chose Migratory Push Server as its live web delivery platform after evaluating multiple leading Comet servers.
"Migratory Push Server is gaining more and more interest from other industries besides banking, the industry for which we initially created our push technology," said Mihai Rotaru, Managing Director at Migratory Data Systems.
"While Migratory Push Server offers a reliable and resilient real-time web infrastructure – a must for the banking industry, its extreme scalability also makes it very attractive for the real-time web applications with lots of users. In fact, Migratory Push Server is the only Comet server able to push real-time data to more than 1 million concurrent users from a single server, being up to 10 times more scalable than competing push servers in the market today," Rotaru added.
"Migratory Push Server has allowed Heritage to take our real-time auction bidding system to the next level; providing more scalability, reliability, flexibility, and mobility than any of its competitors. Migratory's support is also second to none," said Ryan Sokol, Director of Web Technology at Heritage Auctions.
