XIRSYS Takes On WebRTC Hosting

One of the newest web standards to emerge in the world of video hosting and streaming is WebRTC, a new open source project specifically aimed at allowing web browser applications to support real time communications. To address that, a new, local startup, XirSys has launched a new infrastructure-as-a-service aimed at hosting WebRTC applications and services. The Valencia-based startup announced today that it has launched, and has opened up a beta test of its service to developers. The new startup comes out of Influxis, a firm which had been providing hosting for flash-based RTC. The new startup is headed by Richard Blakely.
