"Push Messages" Dimension on pay-per-use basis

Avatar

Level 1

Hi everybody,

I'm working on a browser-based collaborative application where apart from video conferencing an important part is going to be the chat and a shared whiteboard. I decided to use Adobe LCCS but looking at the pricing and hoping a big amount of users chatting and sharing whiteboards I think the "Push Messages" dimension payment isn't going to be affordable for me... It says $0.10 per 1Kb of data, wich means that this is the cost for 1000 letters (about 150 words) which seems to me expensive. By the other hand we have the whiteboard which is going to send also some bytes to the server... I think for example in a one-hour session between two users chatting and sharing a whiteboard and at a conservative estimate it can cost about  $10 ..

I don't know if i don't understant the concept of "Push Messages" or there is something wrong on the explanation....

I'd be very grateful if somebody could help me with this issue...

Thanks!

Hi there,

The rate is for 1000 messages, not 1K of data. My best advice to you is to

use your app against the free quota for a bit wait until 5-10 minutes after

the room is empty, then go check out the usage statistics in the Developer

Portal. Usually, you'll find this is pretty affordable.

hope that helps
