Azul Webinar: The New Zing - More Performance. Zero Hassles.
Presenter: Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter November 2019
In this webinar, Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter explores what’s new with the Zing JVM and how Java developers and operations teams can take full advantage of Zing’s latest enhancements.
The Zing JVM was built to eliminate the latency and performance issues that can plague other Java runtimes. Garbage collection, JIT compilation and startup time have all been enhanced in Zing, helping Azul to deliver great performance while helping our customers reduce both capex and opex. Until recently, Zing derived some of its performance advantages through the use of a Linux kernel module that required a privileged account to install and configure. That requirement has been eliminated. Today Zing is now far easier to deploy and manage, making it ideal for containerized deployments and microservice-based architectures.
