I was wondering what are the pros and cons of moving our text based broadcast
service from Flash Remoting to Flash Media server. Right now we have the client
flash file retrieve messages via the Flashservice Gateway installed by
Coldfusion 7. As of this moment we do not see the need for audio or video
interaction. Also it is a broadcast system so we send messages to our clients,
the do not send messages back. A one way chat if you will.
Of course cost is a factor, but outside of cost, how much of a benefit would
it be? Or would it be overkill so to speak.
Is the server load reduced or greater? Is it better for the client system? How
is bandwidth affected? This topic has come up a few times... but I would like
to ask the pros for thier suggestions.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
