But with requirements like these, finding a reliable realtime technology that could scale with the company, was secure, quick to deploy, easy to extend and offered the performance to cater for demanding business use cases proved no easy task.
Taking enterprise messaging to the next level
After extensive benchmarking and evaluation, Briteback decided to use deepstream as the backbone for realtime communication across desktops, mobile devices and microservices and has worked with it ever since.
Reduced time to market
Using deepstream, Briteback could save a major share of backend development time. Both realtime data and request/response workflows are handled out-of-the-box just as database management, routing, failover and clustering. This allowed Briteback to fully concentrate on their core values, creating an outstanding user experience, well designed workflows and extensive communication capabilities.
Briteback is designed to cater for the demanding requirements of even the largest enterprises. It’s access control model allows for fine grained permissioning, role-based grouping, intersecting groups, individually elevated rights and dynamic permission changes.
With thousands of lines of permissioning logic, this proved to be an extremely challenging requirement. Deepstream’s multitude of authentication and permission strategies, granular per-message checks and encrypted connections made it possible for Briteback to offer the fine-tuned security model that enterprise customers demanded.
When it comes to instant messaging and team communication, high availability and low latency is key. With deployments in datacentres across the world, Briteback needed a solution that could be rolled out, maintained and updated with very little overhead.
Deepstream’s minimal installation, simple configuration and millisecond startup time proved to be a good fit for that. What made Briteback’s usecase particularly challenging was the need to use the same system for both cloud deployments and on-premise versions for enterprise customers. With distributions for most major Linux versions, Windows, Mac and Container environments, deepstream offered this flexibility and fitted a wide range of environments and architectures.
Reduced complexity and ease of use allowed Briteback to significantly accelerate time to market, but the true challenge has only just begun. Since working with deepstream, the company has seen significant growth. Deepstream’s horizontal scalability and decentralized clustering support will continue to ensure that infrastructure won’t be a bottleneck on Briteback’s rise, no matter the scale.
Briteback is a start-up within the IT sector, with its headquarters located in Norrköping, Sweden. The company was founded in late 2014 by Johan Åberg (CEO), David Erenger (CTO), and Per Nordling (Chairman of the board). With Johan Åberg’s background as an assistant professor in Computer Science at Linköping University, Briteback is built on scientific knowledge and research within the fields of team communication, interaction design, and electronic commerce. Briteback is based on the idea that team communication can only be efficient - and team member satisfaction guaranteed - if knowledge sharing is easy, fast and transparent.
