Through the Azul Embedded Program, partners gain access to Azul’s portfolio of Java compliant runtimes and flexible licensing and support models that simplify the incorporation of Azul’s Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) into your physical and virtual software solutions (e.g., on-premises applications, cloud-based solutions, or physical hardware appliances).
This program helps ensure that your Java-based solution is running on an enterprise-class JVM that has been certified and verified Java SE-compliant, with the IP protection and mission-critical 24×7 support your teams need to ensure customer success.
The sections below provide an overview of the Azul Embedded Program and outline the benefits of participating, as well as how to get started.
Ever-changing business dynamics require continuous access to secure, reliable, and innovative Java runtimes that meet the needs of your customers without imposing draconian business models that encumber product growth and field use. By partnering with Azul for your embedded Java needs, Independent Software and Hardware Vendors (ISVs/IHVs) can access industry-leading technology and enterprise-class support. The Azul Embedded Program can help your organization:
The Azul Embedded Program provides access to the latest Java patch level and embedded Java profiles across multiple operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac) and processor types (x86, Arm32/64, PPC32/64, MIPS64). Azul products are backed by support resources to help you deliver exceptional products while maintaining control of the customer experience.
To complement our technology, Azul offers a partner relationship that addresses your unique requirements:
FLEXIBLE BUSINESS MODELS FOR EMBEDDED SOLUTIONS
Azul’s flexible business models accommodate the business and sales processes of our partners for joint success. As a partner ships more Azul embedded solutions qualifying for the Embedded Program, discounted pricing is offered for higher volumes and longer support terms.
PARTNER DEVELOPER SUPPORT AND EXTENDED SUPPORT
From the start of the partnership, Azul provides our embedded partner developers with support for installation, configuration, diagnosis of issues, temporary patches, and regular access to Java Critical Patch Updates (CPUs) for all Azul JVMs. Azul technical support personnel are skilled in triaging challenging Java development and runtime issues, including root cause analysis associated with complicated runtime stacks and Java containers. Azul Support also offer a full array of different JVM build configurations, including compact profiles, to match the specific needs of each embedded partner.
When you bring a solution to market, Azul is there to provide the technical support you need to help your customers. The Embedded Program is designed so that our partners provide first-line support to their customers (i.e., maintain the support relationship with their customers), while Azul’s 24×7 global network of knowledgeable support engineers provide level 2 & 3 support. As an embedded partner, you can escalate any and all issues to our 24×7 support team which responds, escalates, and quickly resolves high-priority problems and provides any necessary patches.
Partners are required to submit quarterly royalty reports to Azul in compliance with contractual commitments. Royalty reports contain the partner name, contact information, number and date of units distributed and renewed, embedded fee, and partner’s product name.
