You can estimate hardware configuration and deployment price based on the QoS of the message reported by the device
Select Authentication/ACL database cluster (optional)
A dedicated PostgreSQL database cluster will be created for MQTT connection authentication and message publish/subscribe ACL data source. The PostgreSQL cluster is highly available – if master is failover, the slave can be automatically elected as master. If you are not clear about this, you can firstly create EMQ cluster, and PostgreSQL database cluster can be created later.
Select message bridge and persistence (optional)
Kafka (coming soon): Save the message sent from device to backend Kafka clusters. The Kafka cluster can be either managed by yourself, or using Kafka service managed by AWS (link).
