We are super excited to announce the release of version 2.3 of our XirSys platform!

Updates included in this release are:

  • Partner API and Command-line tool (Beta)(available to all paid accounts)
  • Fully Integrated Jitsi Videobridge (for SFU many-to-many video meetings)
  • Primary support for &yet’s signalmaster WebRTC signalling for SimpleWebRTC
  • PubNub + Xirsys use Guides (Part 1 and 2)
  • 4 dimensional data store (Alpha)

Cool!! So how does this help me? Well, check this out…

Partner API (beta)

Use our Partner API and command-line tool to deeply manage and control your Xirsys account as well as create and manage individual sub-accounts. This allows you to create your own dashboards and white-label resell the service.

This is available to all paid accounts while in beta. If you would like to use the new Partner API, please email your request to experts@xirsys.com.

Full documentation along with samples can be found here

SFU (Selective Forwarding Unit)

Now, with Xirsys support for the Jitsi Videobridge, you have the ability to host video conference calls with essentially unlimited participants (Xirsys TURN bandwidth permitting), similar to a Google Hangouts video call.

We have even gone a step beyond and made it dead simple to deploy the Jitsi client with a single API call. This call returns a url for instant deployment within the browser. Enjoy!

SignalMaster

Now Xirsys has built-in support for &yet’s awesome signalling server for SimpleWebRTC. This makes it easier than ever to deploy SimpleWebRTC based applications. No longer will you need to setup or use an outside server. Bon appetit!

PubNub + Xirsys Usage Guides

PubNub is hands-down the best global real-time data service provider in the world and brings with it many advantages when used along with Xirsys. Stay tuned for Part 3!

KV4 – 4 Dimensional Key/Value Data Store (Alpha)

Our new persistent data-store service which we affectionately call “KV4” gives you the ability to store key/value pairs based on 4 dimensions: basic hash table, path, layer, and time. This is very useful for storing persistent data like custom logging, chat history, user history, etc.
