CTO and co-founder Gil Tene to speak to developers on "Understanding Java GC... and what you can do about it"
October 26, 2011
Chicago, Ill. and Sunnyvale, Calif. – Garbage Collection is an integral part of application behavior on Java platforms, yet it is often misunderstood. As such, it is important for Java developers to understand the actions you can take in selecting and tuning collector mechanisms, as well as in your application architecture choices. In this session, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) will review and classify the various garbage collectors and collection techniques available in JVMs today.
Gil Tene (#giltene) co-founded Azul Systems in 2002 with the goal of eliminating common Java responsiveness, performance, scale and overall deployment barriers.
At Azul, Gil pioneered Pauseless Garbage Collection, Java Virtualization and various other managed runtime and systems stack technologies that combine to deliver the industry’s most scalable and robust Java platform.
Prior to co-founding Azul Systems, Gil was Director of Technology at Nortel Networks, Shasta Networks and at Check Point Software Technologies, where he delivered several industry-leading traffic management solutions including the industry’s first Firewall-1 based security appliance, and the industry’s first subscriber edge Broadband Service Node..
