Zing 16.10 feature
Key Enterprise Benefit
New low-latency profile options
More consistent application performance for both average and peak response time and latency, fewer missed opportunities in transaction-intensive environments, greatly improved application throughput, better use of existing system capacity
Reduced runtime memory “footprint” per JVM instance
Reduction in server resources needed to run Java applications with Zing while maintaining pauseless operation. Operations teams can now configure and specify smaller AWS machine images, saving on operating expenses in Cloud deployments
