Azul Systems Gives DevOps New Control Over Java Runtime Performance

Latest Zing(R) Release Extends Azul's ReadyNow!(TM) Technology to Enable Fine-Grained Control of Java Compilation

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- QCon New York 2014 -- Azul Systems®, Inc. (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java™ runtime solutions, today announced the general availability of its Zing® runtime for Java, release 5.10. The new Zing release extends production support for new server-grade Amazon AWS instances, is certified for use in Big Data applications running Cloudera Enterprise 5, and gives Java developers and DevOps teams a new set of compiler APIs and other features that extend the functionality and scope of Azul's ReadyNow!™ technology.

Key new ReadyNow! features in Zing 5.10 include:

  • Compilation policy controls during live operation, which greatly improve the behavior of high-performance applications that must execute quickly without later encountering stalls and slowdown at critical times.
  • Compiler APIs and Compiler configuration directives, which allow Java developers to specify the desired level of compilation and optimization policies applied at the individual class or method level. This maintains high levels of optimization while avoiding future stall-inducing code de-optimization.
  • Improved "unreached" code handling, which optimally compiles code even when infrequently used, thereby reducing unexpected stalls and pauses during live operation.

In addition to the new ReadyNow! features, Zing's ability to support cloud deployments on Amazon is also extended in release 5.10. Along with existing support for RHEL, SLES, CentOS and Ubuntu, Zing 5.10 adds support for Amazon Linux and is now fully supported on all Amazon instance types that utilize HVM (hardware virtual machine) virtualization, providing operations teams with a range of cost-effective, powerful new deployment options in the cloud.

"Beyond our new cloud and Big Data-centric capabilities, Zing 5.10 is the most developer-empowering Zing release we've ever built," said Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO. "Our goal with this new Zing release is to give leading-edge Java DevOps teams the tools they need to monitor, control and tune the behavior of latency and throughput-sensitive Java applications."

"Like most developers building applications at scale, Java developers are always looking for better control over their runtime environment," said Stephen O'Grady, principal analyst at RedMonk. "Azul's focus on exposing latent JVM features and capabilities, therefore, is likely to be well-received by those building Java applications for the enterprise."

Zing 5.10 Availability

Zing 5.10 is a 64-bit JVM that complies with the Java SE 7 and SE 6 standards, and runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Ubuntu, Amazon Linux and CentOS. Version 5.10 of the Zing runtime for Java is available immediately.

Existing Azul customers and partners can download Zing 5.10 from Azul's Support portal, while prospective users and new ISV partners can access the Zing binaries via the Zing Trial page, located at http://info.azulsystems.com/ZingTrialSignup.html. Developers working on open source projects can also gain access to free Zing subscriptions by sending an email to [email protected].

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
