2013 HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING FOR WALL STREET, September 9, 2013 — Azul Systems®, the award-winning leader in Java runtime scalability, today announced a new Zing low-latency solution, designed for new and existing customers who need to deliver highly consistent low-latency Java application performance for their essential business systems. The new Azul offering includes the Zing Low-Latency Quick Start Service and Zing subscriptions with premium support. Quick Start Service is delivered by Azul’s professional services team, and these consulting services are intended to optimize both new and existing low-latency Java applications requiring peak latency outliers of single-digit milliseconds and below. The service is implemented in close partnership with developers, architects, test, operations and QA teams.
Java is deployed throughout many industries in latency-sensitive, revenue-critical applications ranging from high frequency & algorithmic trading to real-time wireless applications to social gaming. Established and emerging businesses continue to place new demands on their applications for high levels of overall performance as well as consistent, jitter-free operation. In many cases Java meets these demands, but intermittent Java-based performance stalls, glitches, and pauses – even at millisecond and below levels — can pose a risk to real-time business operations, impacting revenue, customer loyalty and developer productivity.
Highly-tuned, low-latency Java applications are the primary target of the new Azul offering. By replacing their Hotspot JVMs with Zing and utilizing Azul’s Quick Start expert consulting services, latency-sensitive applications with acceptable average latency can achieve peak latencies in the single-digit millisecond and below range. In addition to JVM tuning, Azul’s consultants will also ensure that production Linux servers are best-configured for low-latency operation, thereby eliminating the performance artifacts that improperly-tuned systems can also inflict on even the best-designed applications.
Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO, said: “This new offering helps our latency-sensitive customers gain, and sustain, the predictable performance they require to meet the demands of today’s real-time business. No other company can deliver a single, risk-free Java runtime plus the integrated services optimized for the needs of latency-sensitive businesses.”
The new Azul offering is available immediately.
