Topic: Data streaming from webserver to client

Dear Ruby on Rails experts,

I have an idea to stream data in real-time to a database. Then, the database will in turn stream data to several clients. May I know if this is achievable by Ruby on Rails? Any suitable websites that I should start with for this application? Pardon me if this is a stupid question. I am a total newbie to Ruby on Rails and web development.

Thank you.
