Guest Post: Using NATS For Secure, Fast, Low-latency IoT Sensor Messaging

By: Danko Miocevic - Date: September 14, 2016

I am in the process of launching a company I’ve founded in the IoT sensors space. I hope to be able to share more details very soon, but I wanted to share what I can in the meantime with the developer community about how we are using NATS in our IoT messaging initiatives and would be very interested in any feedback, suggestions or questions! Our platform is based on an IoT network of distributed sensors. Read More…


Guest Post: Saving lives using NATS for IoT Messaging

By: Farzad Azima - Date: May 24, 2016

NATS as the IoT mobile messaging system for an earthquake early warning network I’m a programmer. I like to find difficult problems to solve, and work on effective solutions to these problems. We’ve all seen earthquakes covered in the news, sadly, , and earthquakes are on the rise globally. The average frequency and magnitude of earthquakes has increased recently, and more people than ever are living in urban areas which are dangerous during earthquakes. Read More…


NATS: A Central Nervous System for IoT Messaging

By: Brian Flannery - Date: May 9, 2016

The Linux Foundation’s OpenIoT Summit was held in San Diego in April, and for those of you who attended and maybe went home with some swag, you’ll remember the NATS team had a booth. What you may not remember a month later are the details of Larry McQueary’s overview of NATS at one of the speaking sessions. As a refresher, the recording of the talk is now available for viewing on YouTube. Read More…


Guest Post: NATS and IoT helping to meet Civic needs: An Example Project: Ripple

By: Jason Rotella - Date: April 15, 2016

In the context of a submittal to the Samsung Maker’s Against Drought Challenge (more on that here) extended hackathon, my team has developed a partial solution to the very serious California drought crisis. I say partial since this problem is so vast that many solutions are required to operate collaboratively to fully solve it. The solution utilizes physical water system monitoring and control with Samsung ARTIK 10 IoT modules, and a Particle Photon module running the arduino-nats NATS client. Read More…


Event Enabling the Internet of Things using AWS Lambda, NATS and Apcera

By: Dean Sheehan - Date: February 10, 2016

Recently I decided to see how easy it would be to create an AWS Lambda equivalent within the Apcera trusted cloud platform and use NATS as an event source for triggering function invocations. This blog entry gives an outline of AWS Lambda, the approach I took to get a first implementation up and running and offers up some thoughts on possible futures. What is AWS Lambda? AWS Lambda (λ) is computation without computers, or at least without the explicit notion of computer machines, virtual or physical hosts; in many ways, the ultimate evolution of Platform As A Service and Microservice architectures.
