Boost your engine growth with chat and social value
Based the insights and experiences from Nicolas Vérité’s two decades in the chat and instant messaging industry.
The MongooseIM platform is designed to build high-performance instant messaging systems. It is aimed at large, complex enterprise level projects where real-time communication is critical for business success. Built around proven technologies XMPP/Jabber, the MongooseIM platform provides communication for millions of online users in high-growth sectors such as social media, gaming, and telecommunications. It is reliable, fault-tolerant, can utilise the resources of multiple clustered machines, and can scale easily when more capacity is needed.
The MongooseIM messaging platform significantly lowers the pain of integration by making it easier and faster. By offering a REST API (simple, modern and popular with developers) for both backend integration and client/server development, it lowers the barriers of entry for developers and allows the addition of innovative real-time, social features to existing apps. Globally, the MongooseIM messaging platform enables higher acquisition, retention, and engagement, by leveraging high-density, real-time network effects.
MongooseIM platform is open source under GPLv2 and can be used at any volume without license fees. Due to its clean and modular design, it integrates easily with pre-existing solutions within a company.
The features you order can be developed in a private repository giving you the sole access to it, or as an open feature - maintained and expanded by the community.
MongooseIM platform consists of multiple software components and extensions, allowing you to select a configuration tailored to your particular requirements:
+ Server: MongooseIM, MongoosePush, MongooseICE, Mongoose-ansible, CLT/Tide
+ Client: Smack, XMPPFramework, Retrofit, Jayme, Mangosta iOS+Android, amoc,
escalus (soon IoT SDK, Mangosta Web).
Over 40 different XMPP-related metrics, allowing close monitoring of what happens inside your MongooseIM nodes.
Horizontal linear cluster scalability comes as standard. Your cluster can be grown and scaled according to traffic profiles and user base and there's no need to redesign the system as the customer use increases. Additional hardware requirements are modest. MongooseIM is highly memory-efficient.
MongooseIM platform is built around proven technologies such as XMPP/Jabber providing high performance, high availability, ease of deployment and development, and reliability in production. While all messaging features are available using the XMPP protocol, it adds a client/server REST API for front-end and back-end integration. This allows building a massively scalable chat system with a very fast time to market and exposing businesses to a wider pool of developers adopting the MongooseIM platform.
MongooseIM enables mobile app developers to build and integrate chat features much faster and more easily into their apps. We have contributed to a number of open source, third party XMPP libraries such as Smack for Android and XMPPFramework for iOS. We offer feature parity between MongooseIM server and Smack + XMPPFramework.
