7 Reasons to #SwitchToAzul

for the industry’s best Java platform and support

1

Reduce your Java TCO 90%.

Why pay more? We guarantee a minimum savings of 25%. Actual savings of customers ranges from 50-90%, even more. Big Java shops save millions.

2

Get the industry’s best support.

Azul Support enables you to get maximum value from your investment in Java. Our engineers help you understand and solve Java issues quickly to get the most out of your infrastructure and architectural decisions. The team’s 100% customer satisfaction is testament to their quality and success.

3

Migrate risk-free with a guaranteed
drop-in replacement for Oracle.

Azul’s Java platform products are engineered to be fully compatible with Oracle Java SE. We conform to the same standards, verify with the same TCK test suite, and even make the same fonts Oracle uses available—free.

“Azul was a drop-in replacement and migration has taken less than three months. Had we known how seamlessly and smooth the process would be, we would have switched from Oracle Java to Azul much earlier on,” says Michael Thalhammer, Head of Software Development at Commend International GmbH.

4

Easy, straightforward, flexible licensing.

Azul is about customer success first and foremost. “Azul provides a well-supported, reliable and secure Java JDK and runtime that we use in many of SAS Institute’s products and solutions. The satisfaction of thousands of SAS customers demonstrates the quality of the Azul Platform and Azul as a great Java support partner,” says Sam Penfield, Advisory Solutions Architect at SAS.

5

Rest assured that your applications
are secure and compliant.

Azul is the only Java leader besides Oracle that provides both quarterly security-only Critical Patch Updates for rapid deployment plus consolidated Patch Set Updates that combine bugfixes, new features, and security patches. We consistently deliver security updates to customers within one hour after release while others take days, sometimes weeks.

6

Assure high performance in any environment—on-prem, cloud, IoT.

Azul is the Java platform designed for the modern cloud enterprise, enabling Java teams to develop, deliver, optimize, and manage Java applications across multi-cloud environments with the certainty of the highest performance, security, and value.

Azul Platform Core is a 100% open source Java development and runtime platform designed, in true Java fashion, to run anywhere.

Azul Platform Prime (formerly Zing Enterprise) extends Azul Platform Core, adding unique innovations to improve the runtime characteristics of Java workloads. Powered by Azul Zulu Prime Builds of OpenJDK, Azul Platform Prime delivers added performance, scale, consistency, and efficiency to Java applications, and can reduce cloud infrastructure costs by as much as 50%. Azul Platform Prime powers diverse and demanding use cases from websites, social media, and SaaS-based solutions to the most mission-critical, revenue-impacting, customer-facing applications such as e-Commerce, billing, and trading platforms.

  • We’re a founding advisory board member of Foojay, a Place for Friends of OpenJDK, which is filling a void at the heart of the Java open-source community with a richly informative and engaging hub for all who use OpenJDK and for Java developers in general.
