SignalR is one of the most popular frameworks for building real-time applications. SignalR is built upon WebSockets which are supported in all modern browsers and provides a protocol for bi-directional messaging. SignalR supports a variety of scenarios from creating real-time dashboards to broadcast messaging.
The Azure SignalR Service provides a serverless SignalR back-end to handle the messaging concerns while simplifying the hosting concerns including scalability and load balancing. Also, as part of the Azure offering, integration with other services is easily supported like Azure Active Directory, Azure Storage as well as Azure Analytics, Power BI and others.
