EMQ users now can successfully build their MQTT deployment in just 5 seconds. With a pay-as-you-go pricing model and autoscaling capability, users can grow their operations seamlessly.
EMQX Cloud Serverless offers a forever free monthly package of 1 million session minutes per month, equivalent to about 23 devices online for a month, making it the ideal choice for small and medium-sized IoT businesses and independent developers. The Beta-testing version is now open for free trials on the EMQX Cloud website, starting today until March 31, 2023.
Introducing a flexible multi-tenant architecture, your serverless MQTT service available in just 5 seconds
“Serverless” – as a cloud computing application development and execution model – was first mentioned in 2012 and gradually emerged as a key technology architecture that is redefining the way enterprises build, consume, and integrate cloud-native IoT applications. With the growth of cloud computing, serverless is regarded as the third generation of general-purpose computing platforms following virtual machines and containers.
Due to its capability to enhance agility and scalability, serverless addresses the problems of scaling on-demand computing resources. It emphasizes the lack of a specific server for users to manage, meaning that cloud vendors take care of the deployment and automatic scaling of servers, allowing users to focus on their applications only, taking away the responsibility of infrastructure provisioning.
EMQX Cloud Serverless, as a serverless MQTT service, offers a cutting-edge solution for fully automated building, deployment, and scaling of MQTT services. It leverages a clustered multi-tenancy architecture, as opposed to traditional single-tenant clusters. This innovative approach allows for more efficient utilization of service capacity through sharing across multiple tenants while maintaining complete isolation of each tenant’s data and communication for maximum security. Moreover, well-planned configuration and limiting ensure that the high concurrency of any one tenant does not negatively impact the performance of others.
With its ground-breaking multi-tenant architecture, EMQX Cloud Serverless enables swift and efficient sharing of the created cluster, reducing the time required for cluster creation and deployment. In just 5 seconds, developers can establish a secure, scalable, and fully functional MQTT service.
Why is serverless MQTT service your optimal option?
Serverless MQTT service is a scalable and cost-effective solution for all stages of IoT development.
When you go EMQX Cloud Serverless, you can handle the system’s restrictive capabilities by offering computing resources that scale up or down in real-time, which streamlines the development process and empowers developers to create automated MQTT services with ease and convenience.
With its flexible pricing model and automatic scaling feature, a serverless architecture could be the best match for the IoT development and testing phase:
For a typical scenario with 20-30 devices and normal message frequency and size, the cost is negligible, saving users from the expenses of infrastructure software. As the business grows and the number of devices increases, the service can effortlessly scale, eliminating the need for infrastructure migration and reducing overall costs.
