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."

@DevOpsSummit Stories
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
