Azul Systems® Zing Named Finalist in the 2013 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards by Network Products Guide

Azul Systems, the award-winning leader in Java runtime scalability, announced today that Network Products Guide, industry’s leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Azul’s Zing(TM) a finalist for the 8th Annual 2013 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards in the Product Optimization category. These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry. Winners will be honored in Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 during the 8th annual dinner and presentations.

Key benefits of Zing that help optimize enterprise application performance include:

  • Zing Eliminates Latency Outliers – Zing is designed to eliminate all the pauses, glitches, and jitter that can appear in even the best-tuned Java applications. Businesses using Zing can meet the most demanding Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) by achieving predictable, smooth, customer-delighting response times out to five nines even under high load.
  • Applications Can Access More Memory Without Performance Penalties – Developers and operations teams no longer have to be constrained by small in-memory stores and tiny Java heaps. Zing allows Java applications to scale to hundreds of GBytes per instance without performance penalties or unpredictable pause times. More application memory enables significantly improved real-time analytics, search, caching and other uses by keeping more information in-memory instead of needing access to slower external systems.
  • Zing Helps Improve Application Availability and Infrastructure Efficiency – Individual application instances deployed on Zing automatically scale up and down both memory and CPU resources based on real-time demands, eliminating the rigid and inefficient nature of current Java deployments. Enterprise Java applications are able to use a minimum footprint and share resources during off-peak periods, but are able to dynamically scale to achieve required response time and availability metrics even under extreme loads.
  • See What’s Happening Within Running Java Applications — Without Slowing Them Down – Zing includes Zing Vision, Azul’s monitoring toolthat is a true, zero-overhead, always-on production-time diagnostic and monitoring tool that allows administrators to diagnose application problems and determine where to focus on performance — while in production — reducing tuning and debugging iterations and also shortening development lifecycles.

An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology.

“It is an honor to be a finalist for the Hot Companies and Best Products award,” said Scott Sellers, CEO and founder of Azul Systems. “Zing is a unique product poised to meet the challenges of today’s real-time business workloads. We help optimize application performance, latency, flexibility and throughput, helping customers and partners deliver new functionality that is unavailable using traditional Java runtimes. We are proud to be recognized by this esteemed industry and peer award.”
