- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
