NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more
Trial Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
VerneMQ is an open-source, high-performance, distributed MQTT broker. We've blipped other MQTT brokers in the past like Mosquitto and EMQ. Like EMQ and RabbitMQ, VerneMQ is also based on Erlang/OTP which makes it highly scalable. It scales horizontally and vertically on commodity hardware to support a high number of concurrent publishers and consumers while maintaining low latency and fault tolerance. In our internal benchmarks, we've been able to achieve a few million concurrent connections in a single cluster. While it's not new, we've used it in production for some time now, and it has worked well for us.
