Azul Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Azul Systems, Inc. Announces General Availability of Release 16.07 of Zing Runtime for Java

Azul Systems announced the immediate general availability of release 16.07 of the company’s Zing runtime for Java. Zing is a drop-in replacement for legacy Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and is ideal for businesses looking to improve the performance and consistency of their Java applications, drive new revenue, and deliver the best possible customer experience. Azul’s Zing eliminates JVM-specific issues like runtime stalls associated with garbage collection and various other revenue-robbing performance artifacts that are difficult to identify and resolve. Zing’s consistent performance and scalability, even under unpredictable load, allows Java developers and DevOps personnel to focus on developing innovative new features and capabilities in their applications and eliminates an entire class of engineering work associated with tuning and optimizing the JVM. Key features and benefits of the new Zing release 16.07 include the following: New Zing Feature: Support for Intel’s Transactional Synchronization Extensions (TSX) found in Intel’s “Broadwell” Xeon servers. 8% to 10% improved performance for Apache Cassandra, Datastax Enterprise, and Apache Spark deployments. 75% reduction in compiler pauses during application warm-up when using Zing’s ReadyNow! technology. General performance improvements - 5% average improvement across a wide range of applications compared to earlier releases of Zing. New, simplified pricing plans targeting startups and companies with annual revenues under $25 million per year. Free evaluation and immediate downloads from the Azul website. Pricing and Availability: Zing 16.07 is available immediately from the Azul website and the Amazon Web Services Marketplace. The single license annual subscription price for Zing is $3,500 per server, with significantly lower prices for higher volumes and longer-term subscriptions. Special pricing is available for startups and companies with $25 million or less in annual revenue, and for ISVs and manufacturers looking to embed or integrate Zing with their products.
