The Must-Have Features of a WebSocket / Comet Server

I plan to blog about some important features of the WebSocket / Comet servers:

  1. High Vertical Scalability,
  2. Clustering (Horizontal Scalability / Load Balancing),
  3. Low Latency,
  4. Guaranteed Message Delivery (in presence of failures),
  5. Fault Tolerance (both on client-side and server-side),
  6. Security (including Authorization / Entitlement),
  7. Low Bandwidth,
  8. Monitoring,
  9. APIs,
  10. Benchmarking.

If you think I missed an important feature, please add a comment here with your suggestions.
