Try Waterstream

We worked hard to make it straightforward for you to get started.

Pick the best scenario that fits your needs.

Waterstream is now available as a managed service named Waterstream Cloud. With a few clicks you can create a Waterstream instance and connect it to any cloud service offering Kafka, like Confluent Cloud or Amazon MSK. 

You don't need a Waterstream development license.

Evaluate Watestream by downloading a single Docker image containing everything you need to start with almost zero configuration.

The only requirement is to have Docker installed and a Waterstream development license.
The DevBox is available on the regular x86 machines and the ARM64, such as RaspberryPi.

The DevBox includes:

*a friendly UI to create your MQTT clients and send and receive messages.

Once you are ready, type at your terminal, and Waterstream will start.

					$ docker run -d \
-e MQTT_WS_PORT=9001 \
-v `pwd`/waterstream.license:/etc/waterstream.license:ro \
-p 8080:8080 \
-p 1884:1884 \
-p 1883:1883 \
-p 9001:9001 \
-p 9092:9092 \
-p 2181:2181 \
--name waterstream-devbox simplematter/waterstream-kafka-devbox

Once started, open your browser at http://localhost:8080 to begin interacting with Waterstream.

Evaluate Watestream by creating a multi-service deployment with Docker Compose. Start with our project, customizing it as you like, as we did in our demos.

The only requirement is to have Docker and Docker Compose installed and a Waterstream development license.

The Playground includes:

Once you downloaded the Playground project with 

					$ git clone

Copy the waterstream.license file in the waterstream-playground folder and type

					$ ./

For more details on the playground project, refer to the file in the project root or ask in the forum.

Evaluate Waterstream by deploying it on Kubernetes using Terraform to test a situation closer to a production scenario. This option does not include a Kafka deployment. If you don’t have an existing Kafka Cluster, you can quickly get one using Confluent Cloud.

The requirements are the following:

For more details, please refer to the Terraform project.

Evaluate Waterstream by subscribing for a 30-day free trial on the AWS Marketplace. You will be charged only for the AWS infrastructure you use. After the trial, pay-as-you-go charges apply. 

The only requirement is to have an AWS account. You don't need a Waterstream development license.

For details on the deployment, refer to our Cloudformation project or the Terraform project.
