There are situations when you would like to perform real-time updates for all users which start a session with your web app. This is when you can utilize SignalR and the Kendo UI DataSource. The latter supports signalr dialect by setting its type attribute and transport->signalr configuration. In this way you instruct the data source to use SignalR protocol for transmitting and operating with data in real time on every page refresh, also known under the term long polling.
This is especially useful for web applications which require high-frequency updates, for instance chat apps, real-time gaming, etc. More on the SignalR support of the Kendo UI DataSource can be found in this section of the docs.
