HiveMQ is Now Open

Open source software has fundamentally changed the software industry and is in fact changing how many industries view innovation and collaboration. It is now time to take an important next step for HiveMQ, so we can further accelerate the innovation and adoption of HiveMQ and MQTT.

Today, we are excited to announce the creation of the HiveMQ open source MQTT community.

The first two projects will focus on providing a high quality MQTT broker and client.

  • HiveMQ Community Edition (CE) is a Java-based implementation of the MQTT 3.x and 5 broker specification. The code is based on the HiveMQ commercial product that is being used in production by over 120 companies worldwide.

  • HiveMQ MQTT Client is a Java library that implements the MQTT 3.1.1 and MQTT 5 specification. We developed this library in collaboration with BMW Car IT. It is built for mission critical deployments that require a resilient and rock-stable MQTT implementation.

Official HiveMQ Kafka Integration

Streaming IoT Data and MQTT Messages to Apache Kafka

Apache Kafka is a real-time streaming platform that is gaining broad adoption within large and small organizations. It is not built for IoT, though. 

In conversations with HiveMQ customers, some operating clusters with millions of devices and very high message throughput, we saw the need for creating an MQTT broker extension for Kafka. Our customers wanted to benefit from the native implementations of both MQTT and the Kafka protocol with all delivery guarantees of both protocols.

Therefore, we are excited to announce the HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Kafka.

HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Kafka implements the native Kafka protocol inside the HiveMQ broker and works out of the box with all Kafka distributions like AWS MSK, Confluent Platform or self-hosted Apache Kafka installations.

The extension allows for seamless integration of MQTT message with a single Kafka cluster or multiple Kafka clusters at the same time. It supports 100% the entire MQTT 3 and MQTT 5 specification. We even make is possible to map potentially millions of MQTT topics to a limited number of Kafka topics. Finally, we have extended the HiveMQ Control Center to make it possible to monitor MQTT messages written to Kafka.

The free trial of the HiveMQ Enterprise Extension for Apache Kafka can be downloaded in our Marketplace.

It was never easier to integrate MQTT and Apache Kafka for IoT use cases.
