Workday:
Java-based SaaS
for Millions of Workers

Infrastructure transformation eliminated 95% of operational issues.

Challenge
  • Workday’s key customer-facing application, “as critical as the engine in a car or a heart inside a human,” suffered from serious performance issues.
Solution
  • Over the course of a three-year journey, Workday moved from 0% use of Azul Platform Prime as its JVM to nearly a complete transition to Azul Platform Prime throughout its core services.
Result
  • Azul Platform Prime reduced total pause time per JVM from 40,000 seconds per week to 14 seconds per week.
  • Improved vertical scalability from 200GB to over 2TB.
  • Reduced operational issues by over 95%.
  • This eliminated at least 42,000 person-hours over 1.5 years that would have been spent on performance tuning, saving many millions of dollars and freeing developers to create rather than troubleshoot.
I’m just as enthusiastic today about Azul as when I started out with the product ten years ago as a performance engineer. Azul Platform Prime removes the toil in operations.

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.
