Azul Showcases 45% More Throughput for Apache Kafka Streaming at Current 2023

This year’s data streaming event from Confluent that had it all – including showcasing how a Java runtime can reduce latency and increase throughput.   

Attendees discovered a better Java runtime that helps carry more load capacity across nodes within a Kafka cluster – one of the biggest takeaways from Azul’s session. Booting Kafka Performance in a Day.

In fact, some visitors were surprised to learn that switching from OpenJDK to a modern Java Virtual Machine (JVM) improves performancewith minimal engineering effort and no re-architecture!

Jiří Holuša, senior product manager for Azul’s Platform Prime, left some specific takeaways:

The choice of JVM can drastically affect Kafka‘s performance

  • By improving Kafka performance, you can address the pain points – speed, response times, and cost
  • Azul Platform Prime is the fastest JVM out there
  • It‘s not just for Kafka – it works any for Java application!
  • These are not optimizations you can do manually as a developer
