VerneMQ vs ZeroMQ: What are the differences?

What is VerneMQ? VerneMQ is a distributed IoT/MQTT message broker. VerneMQ is a distributed MQTT message broker, implemented in Erlang/OTP It's open source, and Apache 2 licensed. VerneMQ implements the MQTT 3.1, 3.1.1 and 5.0 specifications..

What is ZeroMQ? Fast, lightweight messaging library that allows you to design complex communication system without much effort. The 0MQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. 0MQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

VerneMQ and ZeroMQ can be primarily classified as "Message Queue" tools.

Some of the features offered by VerneMQ are:

  • Open Source, Apache 2 licensed
  • QoS 0, QoS 1, QoS 2
  • MQTT v5.0 fully implemented

On the other hand, ZeroMQ provides the following key features:

  • Connect your code in any language, on any platform.
  • Carries messages across inproc, IPC, TCP, TPIC, multicast.
  • Smart patterns like pub-sub, push-pull, and router-dealer.

VerneMQ and ZeroMQ are both open source tools. It seems that ZeroMQ with 5.34K GitHub stars and 1.57K forks on GitHub has more adoption than VerneMQ with 1.76K GitHub stars and 189 GitHub forks.
