June 2, 2020 | Virtual Meetup
Join Azul Systems and Gridgain for a virtual meetup on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at 7pm BST. The event, organized by RecWorks on behalf of the London Java Community, will cover architecting low-latency Java systems at massive scale.
Java dominates enterprise deployments, but low-latency scenarios are still a challenge. Think of credit card authorization, mobile sessions handling, electronic trading as typical examples that have to process thousands of operations per second within sub-millisecond boundaries.
Due to the nature of garbage collectors, Java can initiate a stop-the-world pause at any moment in time breaking low-latency requirements and making the behavior of the whole system unpredictable. That’s primarily why Java is not seen as a viable option for such workloads by many.
In this session, we’re going to review a Java-powered software stack based on Azul Zing and Apache Ignite that makes JVM behavior predictable, scales out linearly, and allows selecting Java for high-throughput low-latency scenarios.
