Azul Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Feedzai Partners with Azul Systems

Feedzai and Azul Systems Inc. announced a commercial partnership under which Feedzai is now an Azul Certified ISV partner. Through the partnership, Feedzai will use Zing(R), Azul's innovative Java Virtual Machine (JVM) as part of its Feedzai Fraud Prevention That Learns(TM) software to provide ultra-fast processing of big data. Zing is designed for enterprise applications and workloads that require any combination of large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent response times and high sustained throughput. It is the only JVM that eliminates Java Garbage Collection (GC) pauses and is used by many of the financial services institutions.

Linxa Signs OEM Agreement with Azul Systems

Linxa and Azul Systems announced an OEM agreement under which Linxa will integrate Zing(R), Azul's high-performance Java runtime, into its telecom voice switch solutions to dramatically improve response time consistency and reduce maximum latencies to under 25 milliseconds. Linxa has developed a routing distribution algorithm that decreases interconnect costs by up to 20%, while significantly increasing call quality to Tier 1 carriers and operators. Its algorithms calculate key performance indicators, simplify call rating, optimize routing, and process call data in near real time to increase business efficiencies and improve network performance. However, to ensure that their products operate in near real time consistently and meet carriers' Service Level Agreements (SLAs), Linxa needed to integrate a better Java runtime - a runtime that wouldn't freeze for 10s of seconds or even minutes. Following extensive Java Virtual Machine (JVM) testing on heaps of up to 256 GBs, Linxa was able to reduce application and garbage collection pauses from 3 minutes to under 25 milliseconds using Azul's Zing Java runtime. In the telecoms industry most service providers have built significant infrastructure based on Java. This includes web customer portals, online stores, integrations between systems and a variety of proprietary applications. These applications, in turn, rely on the capabilities of the underlying JVM. Conventional JVMs are not well suited for the low latency and strict SLAs of the modern telecoms industry. Azul's Zing eliminates runtime inconsistency and allows Java applications to scale in both memory and CPU resources without inducing JVM-related pauses.

DotCMS and Azul Systems Partner to Enhance Online Experience of Web-Scale Content Management Systems

DotCMS and Azul Systems Inc. (Azul) announced that Azul Zing(R) is now certified with dotCMS, enabling dotCMS users to benefit from nearly unlimited scalability, consistent response times and improved reliability. DotCMS tested and validated compatibility and performance gains using Zing in its in-house testing unit.
