Getting started with HiveMQ
HiveMQ is a MQTT broker. A broker is basically the server part in the MQTT communication. Beside the common broker functionality HiveMQ provides some extended functionality like building (high availability) clusters, deep integration to your application- and IT infrastructure and enhanced security.
Operation System: Windows or Linux/Unix/BSD/Mac OS X
Java: OpenJDK 1.7 or newer.
A more detailed list of requirements can be found in the HiveMQ User Guide.
