SUNNYVALE, Calif., December 19, 2012 — Azul Systems, the award-winning leader in Java runtimescalability, today announced new ISV partnerships that expand opportunities for Zing™ into new business-critical solutions, including Big Data, in-memory computing, enterprise data grids, and cloud computing. New partnerships with industry leading ISVs are providing unprecedented application scalability and reflect the unique advantages of Zing – ultra-low latency transactions, highly consistent application response time consistency, and fast time to deployment through simplified configurations.
Key new Azul partnerships, including graph DB vendor Neo Technology, reflect the growing enterprise demand for faster performance and greater scalability via new in-memory computing technologies. Big Data partners, such as GridGain and Drawn to Scale, reflect the enterprise’s growing appetite for processing massive amounts of data in less time. New alliances with PaaS vendor CumuLogic and identity data platform specialist UnboundID highlight the importance of application scale and elasticity in Cloud environments. Finally, Azul teams up with the leading Complex Event Processing (CEP) provider StreamBase Systems to help businesses in the financial services and gaming industries operate real-time analytics on streaming data and provide continuous, push-based business intelligence.
“Zing provides Spire, our real-time operational SQL database for Big Data, an out-of-the-box, pre-tuned Java platform with optimal garbage collection, allowing our customers to utilize more of the memory in each server and operate more reliably while reducing the number of application instances needed for a given workload,” said Ryan Rawson, Drawn to Scale VP of Engineering and well known HBase committer.
“The key to real-time big data is the ability to effectively manage very large in-memory data sets,” said Jon Webster, VP of business development at GridGain. “Zing helps us to deliver the world’s fastest MapReduce – without risking the type of GC pauses inherent in all other Java runtimes.”
Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO, added: “Zing was designed to eliminate the response time and scalability challenges caused by Java Garbage Collection in even the most demanding applications. By partnering with Azul, commercial software vendors and open source developers are gaining tremendous advantages over their competitors by delivering high levels of scalability, ultra-low latency, and uninterrupted performance across a variety of industry sectors – without making changes to their existing code.”
