Azul Systems Zing Now Certified With Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

Zing and JBoss Data Grid Deliver Consistent Performance for Best-in-Class In-Memory Solutions

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- O'REILLY STRATA CONFERENCE -- Azul Systems®, Inc. (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime scalability, announced today that Azul's Zing runtime for Java is now certified and fully supported with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. Ideal for JBoss Data Grid deployments leveraging larger data nodes in transactional Big Data implementations, Azul's Zing allows organizations to accelerate time to market, improve application runtime consistency and deliver higher sustained throughput for their JBoss Data Grid-based implementations.

By deploying Red Hat JBoss Data Grid and Azul's Zing together in business-critical use cases, organizations can scale up (into servers with larger memory configurations) or out as required, without sacrificing performance. JBoss Data Grid provides fast, in-memory data access and elastic scale out, while Zing eliminates all JVM-based performance hiccups, drastically reducing peak latencies and providing unprecedented response time consistency. The combined solution is especially attractive for organizations looking to scale up memory heap sizes or store large in-memory datasets on fewer nodes while delivering predictable application performance.

Azul's Zing is designed for enterprise Java applications and workloads that require any combination of large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent human-scale response times or high sustained throughput. Zing provides the following benefits for enterprises implementing JBoss Data Grid:

  • Simpler deployment topology: Zing enables operational simplicity for heap sizes of hundreds of gigabytes per node. This reduces the number of nodes required to store massive data volumes and makes maintenance easier.
  • Consistent response times and SLA compliance: Zing, with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, has been proven to deliver consistent, low response times in the order of tens of milliseconds at the 99.999% percentile, even with node sizes exceeding 300 GB.
  • Faster time to market: By adding Zing to a JBoss Data Grid deployment, DevOps teams will require far less application and JVM tuning to achieve optimal results.

"Zing is ideal for Red Hat JBoss Data Grid customers who are looking to scale up memory heap sizes and store large datasets on fewer nodes while still achieving very predictable response time performance," noted Mike Piech, general manager, Middleware, Red Hat.

"By combining Red Hat JBoss Data Grid with Azul's Zing, Java-based businesses realize a significant competitive advantage," said Scott Sellers, president and CEO of Azul Systems. "Now enterprises can deploy business-critical Java applications requiring large in-memory data sets, consistent real-time performance and scalability in a cost-effective and operational friendly manner."

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that beyond the hype, digital transformation initiatives are infusing IT budgets with critical investment for technology. This is shifting the IT organization from a cost center/center of efficiency to one that is strategic for revenue growth. CIOs are working with the new reality of cloud, mobile-first, and digital initiatives across all areas of their businesses. What's more, top IT talent wants to w...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
