What is SilkMQ

The goal is to develop and operate an messaging service consisting of massively scalable network of brokers and supporting services.

We use Apache ActiveMQ brokers for a number of reasons:

  • open source
  • stable
  • mature
  • feature rich
  • large market penetration


Configuring ActiveMQ in a network of brokers is notoriously difficult. This solution should bring significant value to users who already use ActiveMQ and want to scale out.

Modern Infrastructure

SilkMQ focus is to be a complete operation ready messaging fabric.

Infrastructure Orchestration

SilkMQ is uses a distribution of all popular container orchestrators and scheduling frameworks today, including Docker Swarm, Kubernetes and Mesos.
