Azul Systems® Zing Honored With 2013 Network Products Guide's Best Products Silver Award

Azul Systems, the award-winning leader in Java runtime scalability, announced today that Network Products Guide has selected Azul’s Zing™ as the 2013 Best Products Awards Silver Award winner in the “Performance Optimization” category. The win demonstrates Azul’s continued leadership and innovation in the industry, recognizing Zing as the only JVM optimized for the demanding requirements of today’s real-time business.

Key Zing features that help improve or optimize the performance of Java-based systems include the following:

  • Advanced memory management capabilities that eliminate the response-time outliers caused by garbage collection in traditional JVMs, resulting in more predictable response times and improved end-customer satisfaction
  • Elimination of millisecond-scale pauses in low-latency systems, which can directly improve the consistency of performance in demanding environments in financial services such as trading, market making, real-time risk, compliance and others
  • Support for larger in-memory data stores, which greatly improves the performance of systems that can take advantage of in-memory indexing or memory-based computing
  • Zero-overhead runtime diagnostic and monitoring tools that help accelerate time to recognize, diagnose and resolve application issues in live systems

“We’re honored to have been named a Silver Award winner in Network Products Guide’s Best Products award program,” said Scott Sellers, CEO and founder of Azul Systems. “This recognition further validates Zing’s successes as a key Java performance optimization solution for industries ranging from financial services to insurance, ecommerce, travel, online gaming and many more.”
