    My company are evaluating whether to use signalR in our project.

    I checked the introduction from here.

    >Like the rest of ASP.NET, SignalR was built for high performance and is one of the fastest real-time frameworks around.

    Microsoft says "SignalR is fast and scalable", but there is no real case to prove this. What famous app uses this library? Or what well-known companies have used SignalR in their projects.

    Best Regards,

    Hi XieSteven,

    SignalR is a set of server and client libraries that facilitate simple, real-time, two-way communication between server and client. Not only can the client initiate contact with the server as in Web development, but the server can also contact the client.

    Because SignalR creates a persistent connection between the server and the client, the client can even communicate with other clients through the SignalR server-side component.

    As far as I know, SignaIR has been used in the following areas (including but not limited to):

    • News feed and Notifications in Facebook
    • New updates in Twitter
    • Google Search
    • Google Docs

    You could also refer to this document to learn more about it.

    Hope this can help you.

    Best regards,

    Xudong Peng
