By Mandira Srivastava
In order to address java performance and scalability issues, Azul Systems (News - Alert), a company in Java runtime scalability, has announced the general availability of Zing 5.5, its native Java Virtual Machine (JVM) optimized for Linux for application administrators and Java developers.
Zing 5.5 has been developed to improve performance and response time consistency, enabling tuned low-latency applications to achieve maximum transaction latencies lower than 100 microseconds. It has come up new memory leak detection capabilities and usage monitoring for live, in-production Java applications.
Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO said in a statement, “With Zing 5.5, we have significantly raised the bar on the capabilities of the Java Virtual Machine, never before has real-time, in-production memory leak detection been possible for Java applications. We have answered the call we have heard from our customers to help identify and fix major problems which plague applications in production today and cost businesses real money. In addition, we have implemented significant performance and response-time enhancements targeting application with low-latency requirements. The best JVM for Linux is now even better with Zing 5.5”
Zing 5.5, a cent percent Java-compatible native Java Virtual Machine (JVM) optimized for the Linux operating system, also has profiling tools that are available to help developers identify potential memory leaks in the development cycle. It also helps developers and application monitoring teams to track, in real time, the growth of memory usage by object type, with performance penalties or overhead.
Zing has been built on Azul’s Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector (C4) technology and enables enterprise developers to make and deploy new in-memory applications without risking the problematic performance artifacts caused by traditional Java garbage collectors.
Z ing JVM is available free of charge for Open Source (News - Alert) developers and enterprises can take Zing via a subscription.
