Download the VerneMQ package or build it yourself
That's open source!

Download VerneMQ

Option 1: Download the binary package

Free to test; a paid subscription is required for production use. Therefore, the pre-built packages and docker images are subject to the VerneMQ end user license agreement which you must be accept before using the packages. See Accepting the VerneMQ EULA for more information. The EULA is your promise to set up a paid subscription, in case you use VerneMQ commercially.

Docker builds are available on dockerhub.

For older builds check out the release archive.

    Amazon Linux 2
    Stable build: 1.13.0

Option 2: Build VerneMQ from sources

To build VerneMQ you will need to have a recent Erlang version installed. If you don't find Erlang on your system, please follow the guide Download Erlang OTP from Erlang Solutions. If you prefer to build Erlang yourself, get the sources from or with a great tool named Kerl.

VerneMQ depends on source code located in multiple Git repositories. Please make sure that git is installed on the target system. You'll also need to have libsnappy-dev (or snappy-dev on Centos based systems) on your system, before compiling VerneMQ.

The following instructions generate a complete, self-contained build of VerneMQ in $VERNEMQ/_build/default/rel/vernemq where $VERNEMQ is the location of the unpacked or cloned source repository.

Clone the repository using Git and build a release:

git clone
cd vernemq
make rel

VerneMQ is built for Linux, but also runs on Mac OS X. It doesn't currently support Windows, due to the LevelDB code.
