Azul Systems(R) Extends Zulu(TM) to Support Java 6 and Major Linux Distributions

Azul's OpenJDK(TM)-Based Open Source Java SE 6 and 7 Platform Now Supports Both Linux and Windows(R) in Cloud and On-Premise Environments

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 -- Azul Systems®, Inc. (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced that Zulu, its freely-available version of OpenJDK™, now supports both Java 6 and Java 7 on Linux and Windows-based deployments. Java developers, system administrators and end users now have a reliable, rigorously tested, and 100% open source compliant implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) for all their Linux, Windows® and Cloud deployments.

Zulu now supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Ubuntu Desktop and Server, and CentOS Linux distributions, with support for additional distributions planned in the future based on community feedback. Azul previously announced its support of Zulu on Windows Azure, and today is announcing additional support for on-premise Windows deployments. The specific versions of operating system, hypervisor, and Cloud environments supported can be found at http://www.azulsystems.com/products/zulu/specs.

Azul also announced expanded Java community support with the introduction of Zulu Community Forums. Azul's forums are designed to be a high-value resource for Java programmers, devops personnel, product managers and people interested in extending the reach of other powerful open source technologies that depend upon either Java or the JVM.

Zulu forums will be moderated by Azul and community members, and content will range from deeply technical materials to industry news. Membership on the Zulu Community Forums is free, and the first 500 people to register will be able to choose either a Zulu launch T-shirt or a $10 Starbucks gift card*.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
