“Wherever we have Java, we have Azul beneath it powering it up.”

Challenge
  • The server would just stop responding for 15 full minutes for garbage collection. Taboola tried different approaches to performance-tune it: reducing the heap size, increasing the heap size, changing cache strategies. Nothing worked.
Solution
  • Taboola chose Azul Platform Prime for a combination of superior performance, stability, security, memory utilization, ease of use, and the transparency and ease of working with Azul.
Result
  • Azul performance is so superior that “we’re now doing things with our big data system that cannot be done without Azul,” says Ariel Pisetzky, VP of IT for Taboola. That’s why Azul is “famous” across Taboola. Hundreds of developers work at Taboola, and Azul is a household name with them all because of how mission-critical it is and how well it meets that mission.
With Azul, we were able to reduce our front-end server footprint by more than 30%, which is hundreds of servers, and our database server footprint by about 50%. This translates into millions of dollars in savings.

A truly superior Java runtime using up to 50% less infrastructure.

Azul Platform Prime turbocharges the performance and scalability of your Java ecosystem with a hyper-optimized runtime that ensures consistent response times, reduces system stalls, and delivers better customer experiences—all with far less infrastructure.
