Photon vs. SmartFox vs. Electro Server

I was asked at the GDC several times how Photon differentiates from competition (SmartFox was most mentioned, Electro Server second) so here is an quick overview table:

photon_vs_smartfox_vs_electro-server4

Photon and Competition

Although this is just a very basic overview it already shows the advantages of Photon: (reliable) UDP, C++ server, extensible in C#, support of any data types.

    ElectroServer supports HTTP as well as all data types. The latter is with its binary protocol which is AS3-only due to the necessary support on the Flash side.
