Webinar: Most Powerful Java Runtime Meets Fastest In-memory Data Grid
5/17/2016 | Live Webinar I 10:00am PDT
The combination of Hazelcast plus Azul System’s Zing Java Virtual Machine (JVM) delivers compelling benefits to the enterprise. Beyond helping IT and DevOps teams leverage existing Java tools, technology and skillsets, Azul Systems and Hazelcast greatly extend the operational lifetime and capacity of existing memory-intensive applications. In one recent example, a system that was constrained by a legacy JVM could only support 40,000 line items, but was extended to support 1,500,000 in-memory catalogue entries simply by deploying Zing — with no change to the application – while greatly improving the end-user experience and driving incremental sales within the same infrastructure.
In this webinar
- Recent performance benchmarks from Hazelcast and Azul Systems
- The advantages a better Java runtime brings to existing Hazelcast deployments
- Real-world in-memory computing use cases
- Live Q&A
Join our panel of speakers including Gil Tene, CTO of Azul Systems, Chris Engelbert, Manager Developer Relations, and Jason Stamper Analyst at 451 Research discuss the merits of this combined solution in a 60 minute webinar (40 minutes presentation + 20 minutes Q&A).
Gil Tene, CTO of Azul Systems
Gil Tene (@giltene) is CTO and co-founder of Azul Systems. He has been involved with virtual machine and runtime technologies for the past 25 years. His pet focus areas include system responsiveness and latency behavior. Gil is a frequent speaker at technology conferences worldwide, and an official JavaOne Rock Star. He pioneered the Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector (C4) that powers Azul’s continuously reactive Java platforms. In past lives, he also designed and built operating systems, network switches, firewalls, and laser based mosquito interception systems.
Christoph Engelbert, Manager Developer Relations at Hazelcast
In the early days Christoph started with Basic and C64 I later moved over C++ but eventually started Java around 2005. After some years of web development he started to get interested in the JVM internals and what makes a Java application fast and memory efficient. Now Christoph is mostly helping companies making efficient and scalable architectures and so he eventually landed at planet Hazelcast.
