Unmatched performance that enables the most demanding enterprise applications.

From big data to payment processing, the demand of today’s advanced applications creates untenable infrastructure costs for the enterprise. Azul Platform Prime transforms the economics of deploying these applications in the cloud, driving down costs and enabling competitive advantage.

Forrester: “Azul Platform Prime achieves 224% ROI.”

Learn how four innovative customers used Azul Platform Prime to reduce total server count, simplify operations, and improve developer productivity—all while driving down operating costs as much as 50%.

“Without Azul Platform Prime, we would be running five times more infrastructure. Azul has allowed us to focus only on our applications. We don’t have to worry about performance.”

Cody Bayer, DevOps Engineer

“Now, our engineering team is able to ignore performance maintenance and spend all their time building features. Yet, we’re a thousand times faster than your typical payment transaction or website. Azul Platform Prime is a big part of the reason for this.”

Brett Vasconcellos, CTO

“Having a product that I don’t have to adjust and change and modify and work with and turn a bunch of switches and dials, has been great, and the support has been excellent. The best that I’ve ever dealt with.”

Ted Boehm, Chief Platform Architect

“Azul Platform Prime allows us to free up a lot of monetary resources to invest in other aspects of the company as well as other new upcoming products.”

Ariel Pisetzky, VP of IT

“I’m just as enthusiastic today about Azul Platform Prime as when I started out with the product ten years ago as a performance engineer. Azul removes the toil in operations.”
