Clustering MQTT - New Blog Post Series

MQTT servers are critical pieces of a messaging infrastructure and are part of the business critical application backbone that must not fail. The scalable Publish / Subscribe architecture of MQTT depends on a MQTT broker as central distributor of messages. To circumvent such a single point of failure in messaging systems (if a broker is offline, clients can’t communicate!), MQTT broker clusters are required. 

This blog post series discusses why a MQTT broker cluster is needed for professional MQTT deployments. You’ll learn that network partitions must be supported by brokers in cloud environments and that a MQTT broker cluster needs to be resilient and available all the time since a broker cluster is one logical MQTT broker from a MQTT client’s perspective, which also means that a broker must never lose any MQTT sessions, even when topology changes occur.

Read this weeks blog post to learn about:

  • What a MQTT broker cluster is 
  • Why a broker cluster must not trade partition tolerance
  • Advantages of creating a MQTT broker cluster
  • How HiveMQ helps creating resilient, highly available and linearly scalable clusters

Clustering HiveMQ Paper

Have you seen our recent paper about Clustering HiveMQ?

This document discusses how you can eliminate scalability problems by using a MQTT broker cluster that is scalable in a horizontal fashion (which means you can add any number of MQTT brokers at runtime) and eliminates the single point of failure by clustering multiple broker nodes to one logical MQTT broker. 

It shows how you achieve true high availability and linear scalability with HiveMQ.

Thanks and have a great week,
