NATS vs Simperium: What are the differences?
What is NATS? Lightweight publish-subscribe & distributed queueing messaging system. Unlike traditional enterprise messaging systems, NATS has an always-on dial tone that does whatever it takes to remain available. This forms a great base for building modern, reliable, and scalable cloud and distributed systems.
What is Simperium? Move data everywhere it's needed, instantly and automatically. Simperium is a new kind of data layer. As your app reads and writes data, Simperium circulates that data everywhere it's needed. You add a Simperium library to your app and initialize it. This library keeps a persistent connection to the Simperium hosted service. The Simperium libraries and service work together to efficiently move data around for your users.
NATS and Simperium can be primarily classified as "Realtime Backend / API" tools.
"Fastest pub-sub system out there" is the top reason why over 13 developers like NATS, while over 2 developers mention "Simple and useful data model" as the leading cause for choosing Simperium.
