arrow_back Soketi - A Fast & Resilient Open-source WebSockets Server

Soketi is your simple, fast, and resilient open-source WebSockets server.

Easy to Use

Whether you run your infrastructure in containers or monoliths, soketi got your back. There are multiple ways to install and configure soketi, from single instances for development, to tens of active instances at scale with hundreds or thousands of active users.

Blazing fast speed

The server is built on top of uWebSockets.js - a C application ported to Node.js. uWebSockets.js is demonstrated to perform at levels 8.5x that of Fastify and at least 10x that of Socket.IO

Cheaper than most competitors

Compared with Pusher, you can achieve much more for less than one-third of the price.

For a $49 plan on Pusher, you get a limited amount of connections (500) and messages (30M).

With Soketi, for the price of an instance on Vultr or DigitalOcean ($5-$10), you get virtually unlimited connections, messages, and some more!

Pusher Protocol v7

soketi implements the Pusher Protocol v7. Therefore, any Pusher-maintained or compatible client can connect to it, bringing a plug-and-play experience for existing applications that are already compatible with this protocol.

App-based access

You and your users can access the API and WebSockets through Pusher-like apps which serve keys and secrets to connect or authenticate requests for broadcasting events or checking channels statuses. soketi also comes with built-in support for DynamoDB and SQL-based servers like Postgres.


In addition to being a good companion during local development, soketi comes with the resiliency and speed required for demanding production applications.

Built-in monitoring

Soketi just exposes the metrics to you, you just have to scrape them, whether it’s a simple HTTP Client to pull the current usage, or you’re using Prometheus to monitor all the connections.
