Date 2014/11/4 10:03:16 | Topic: Company News

Azul System and DataStax announced a partnership to allow DataStax Enterprise (DSE) customers to leverage the enhanced performance of Azul Zing. Zing is now a certified Java Virtual Machines (JVM) for DataStax Enterprise (DSE), ensuring smooth deployments and seamless operation. In recent benchmark testing, DataStax deployed on Zing outperformed traditional SQL databases by an order of magnitude in both throughput and runtime consistency over conventional JVMs.
Core big data technologies such as Cassandra, Solr and Spark are written in Java requiring a JVM for runtime execution. Azul Zing is the only JVM that implements pauseless garbage collection, providing highly consistent Java runtime performance independent of an application's memory requirements. Zing is ideal for real-time deployments that need to leverage large in-memory datasets and caches. Through this partnership DataStax customers can now deliver greater business value and provide low latency, real-time solutions for demanding applications requiring an ever-increasing amount of in-memory data such as fraud detection, website personalization, payment systems and time-critical decision support.
