Peerbind is a jQuery plugin developed by Amazon to transform a simple Web page into a real-time communications hub.
The plugin uses a central communication server to keep track and broadcast shared messages to all connected users.
This way, all users accessing a page are inter-connected with each other and messages or actions taken by one are reflected on the page to all users.
Usage scenarios include online chats, real-time notification systems, team collaborative tools, Web conferencing software, multiplayer browser games and many others.
The Peerbind package comes with one of Amazon's pre-configured servers to channel messages between a page's users, but custom new, private servers can be added, for extra security, increased speed and performance.
