Azul Systems has announced the release of its Azul Systems Java
Virtual Machine 2.5 (AVM 2.5), a new version of its virtualized Java
Virtual Machine (JVM) with support for the Windows platform.
In addition to improved diagnostics and profiling functionality,
along with enhanced performance capabilities, AVM 2.5 provides support
for heterogeneous Java environments including the Windows, Solaris,
Linux, AIX, and HP-UX platforms.
"AVM 2.5 extends our reach into business-critical Java applications
on the Windows platform which is important for both enterprise and SMB
markets," said Scott Sellers, president and CEO for Azul Systems. "With
our ongoing support of J2SE [Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition] 1.4,
5.0 and Java SE [Java Platform, Standard Edition] 6, we are able to
deliver the industry's best Java Platform across a broad range of Java
Azul's AVM 2.5 also features always-on production monitoring and
diagnostics to provide visibility into all performance aspects of
running Java applications, including detailed memory profiles, thread
execution profiles, and I/O interaction profiles. It also includes what
Azul calls "Enhanced Pauseless Garbage Collection," which eliminates
pause time related application instability even under unpredictable
application loads, the company said. And the system supports seamless
scale in Java memory footprints up to 670GB, and sustains high
throughput applications with allocation rates of 30GB/sec and more,
Azul officials said.
"We are very excited to bring the benefits of tremendous
scalability, accessing hundreds of gigabytes of memory and hundreds of
CPUs, and production time visibility for Java applications on the
Windows platform," said Shyam Pillalamarri, vice president of
engineering for Azul Systems. "Developers on Windows can now leverage
the outstanding productivity benefits that the Azul solution provides."
Azul's new AVM 2.5 runs on the company's Vega Series of Java Compute
Appliances, which enable Java applications to reach unprecedented
levels of scalability, throughput and performance consistency while
simultaneously reducing deployment complexities and total cost of
ownership (TCO), Azul officials said.
