Azul’s Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector (C4) is the only production-ready, generational pauseless garbage collector available in Java and a key component of Azul Platform Prime. Azul Systems has been shipping a production implementation of the C4 collector mechanism since 2010 and many Fortune 500 companies run their code on C4 today.

- Concurrent Remapping
- Concurrent Incremental Update Tracing
