MongooseIM is a mobile messaging platform with focus on performance and scalability.
Designed for enterprise, it is fault-tolerant, can utilise the resources of multiple clustered machines, and easily scales for more capacity by simply adding a box or VM.
MongooseIM can accept client sessions over vanilla XMPP, REST API and SSE, as well as Websockets, and BOSH (HTTP long-polling).
As a platform, MongooseIM includes several server-side (backend) and client-side (frontend) components. The project provides a test suite, metrics, a load testing platform, and a monitoring server.
MongooseIM is free and open source software.
