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].

CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 will cover all of these tools, with the most comprehensive program and with 222 rockstar speakers throughout our industry presenting 22 Keynotes and General Sessions, 250 Breakout Sessions along 10 Tracks, as well as our signature Power Panels. Our Expo Floor will bring together the leading global 200 companies throughout the world of Cloud Computing, DevOps, IoT, Smart Cities, FinTech, Digital Transformation, and all they entail. As your enterprise creates a vision and strategy that enables you to create your own unique, long-term success, learning about all the technologies involved is essential. Companies today not only form multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures, but create them with built-in cognitive capabilities.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO, to be held June 25-26, 2019 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA – announces that its Call for Papers is open. Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the world's largest enterprises – and delivering real results. Among the proven benefits, DevOps is correlated with 20% faster time-to-market, 22% improvement in quality, and 18% reduction in dev and ops costs, according to research firm Vanson-Bourne. It is changing the way IT works, how businesses interact with customers, and how organizations are buying, building, and delivering software.
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform. Then we'll show how automate deploying these images quickly and reliability with open DevOps tools like Terraform and Digital Rebar. Not only is this approach fast, it's also more secure and robust for operators. If you are running infrastructure, this talk will change how you think about your job in profound ways.
The current environment of Continuous Disruption requires companies to transform how they work and how they engineer their products. Transformations are notoriously hard to execute, yet many companies have succeeded. What can we learn from them? Can we produce a blueprint for a transformation? This presentation will cover several distinct approaches that companies take to achieve transformation. Each approach utilizes different levers and comes with its own advantages, tradeoffs, costs, risks, and outcomes.
