Need some help choosing a message broker

soultfji report abuse

I am going to build a network among my IoT devices. Colleagues advised me to use the MQTT protocol to connect because it is lightweight and designed specifically for the Internet of Things. I am thinking of setting up a server with a Raspberry Pi and connecting Arduino and other devices to it. The question is which message broker is best for this purpose? I’m considering Mosquitto and RabbitMQ. What are the peculiarities of them?

I personally recommend VerneMQ

You might one day want to use some other protocol on the server side, like AMQP or WebSocket. Then it is worth choosing RabbitMQ because it supports a broader technology stack. Otherwise, I’d prefer Mosquitto because it is really lightweight and built specifically for MQTT.
