Thanks to the recent development in the technology number of IoT devices increased dramatically. Therefore, industries have been started to use IoT devices for their business processes. Many systems can be done automatically thanks to them. For this purpose, there is a server to process sensors data. Transferring these data to the server without any loss has crucial importance for the accuracy of IoT applications. Therefore, in this thesis a scalable broker for real time streaming data is proposed. Open source technologies, which are NoSql and in-memory databases, queueing, full-text index search, virtualization and container management orchestration algorithms, are used to increase efficiency of the broker. Firstly, it is planned to be used for the biggest airport in Turkey to determine the staff location. Considering the experiment analysis, proposed system is good enough to transfer data produced by devices in that airport. In addition to this, the system can adapt to device increase, which means if number of devices increasing in time, number of nodes can be increased to capture more data.
