Recent updates to Azure Mobile Services address the scalability of mobile apps and their real-time behavior.

This was achieved by the following:
  • .NET backend became generally available and can be used in production. This makes it possible to add a mobility layer to backend easily.
  • Recent update to .NET enables using ASP.NET SignalIR for bi-directional communication with apps in real-time.
Details are here.
The integration with SignalIR Hubs confers the following to Azure Mobile Services:

  • Unified Authentication with a simple Authorize Level
  • Dependency Injection
  • Web API Integration -
  • Automatic Scale-out
Well what is SignalIR?

SignalIR is claimed to be incredibly simple real-time web for .NET. It is another facet of ASP.NET -ASP.NET SignalIR. ASP.NET Signal IR helps developers to simply add real-time web funcitonality to apps, the ability to have server-side code push content to connected clients in real-time.

SignalIR leverages WebSockets, the HTML5 API for bi-directional communication.
