Solarflare develops network interface software and hardware to transform the way applications use networks, providing industry-leading application acceleration for the most demanding scale-out compute environments.

Azul is a certified partner that has optimized its JVM to work with Solarflare’s NICs and Openonload drivers, maximizing “sustained” throughput and network card value.

The Azul-Solarflare solution delivers the key components for application execution consistency while lowering average latency. Designed for ultra-low latency use cases such as DMA, algo-trading, order matching and real-time risk management, the award-winning Azul Zing® features an advanced garbage collector architecture and memory manager that eliminate response-time outliers, resulting in more predictable response times with improved latency. Solarflare’s OpenOnload high performance network stack reduces TCP/UDP/IP network latency and processor utilization, while increasing message rate and bandwidth. Based on recent company benchmarks, OpenOnload increases throughput by two to three times, and decreases latency by 50 percent. When coupled with Zing, average latencies dropped an additional 18 percent, while reducing max outliers by seven times.
