Demo: A serverless topic-based and content-based pub/sub broker

View publication

Abstract

Building scalable, highly available publish/subscribe (pub/sub) systems can require sophisticated algorithms and a tremendous amount of engineering e?ort. This paper demonstrates a way to build a pub/sub broker on top of the OpenWhisk serverless platform that performs topic-based and contentbased matching. This approach radically simplifes the design and signifcantly reduces the amount of code while still achieving scalability targets. Furthermore, we present a publisher/subscriber client application to interact with the broker as well as an evaluator application that enforces heavy workload on the broker to measure the scalability and latency of the pub/sub system and discover the potential bottlenecks.
