Azul Systems: Who We Are
We are a highly skilled and accomplished team of technology leaders, business creators and Java wizards. We have built momentum and set standards resulting in 40 patents issued and 15 more filed, earning the respect of our peers and the delight of our customers. With over 10 years of experience building leading edge products in the enterprise Java space, combined with customer support rated outstanding by clients, we are on a success trajectory.
A secure, stable company based in Sunnyvale, Calif., Azul has offices around the globe, including the US and EMEA. Partnerships are a vital component of our success, and we have an array of partners in both the US and EMEA.
In 2010 we took everything we'd learned from our Java experience, including feedback from key clients and produced the next evolution, our fifth generation and flagship product, Zing™, the world’s highest performance JVM.
Zing™ is a software-based, ultra high performance and elastic JVM with unsurpassed scalability, manageability and production-time visibility running on industry standard x86 hardware and optimized for Linux and x86-64. Zing, the JVM with all of the features built in, is the only Java runtime that supports large heaps and highly consistent and predictable execution, which means you never have to worry about not meeting service level expectations. Zing extends the life and improves performance of today’s mission-critical, revenue-driving Java apps. It is our best and fastest product ever.
Our customers love Java because it is powerful and flexible – and it works. What keeps us motivated and our customers excited is the knowledge that, with Zing, we enable organizations to build and run Java-based systems that are:
✓ Proven low-latency
and which dramatically simplify Java installs and deployments with fewer instances, superior response time consistency, and dramatically better operating costs. That means that we save customers money with every deployment while delivering unprecedented application performance.
Only Azul does this.
Proven in SaaS, PaaS, portals, retail eCommerce, telecom, FX, algorithmic trading, government and cloud – wherever your Java apps have to perform predictably and reliably - here is what our customers say about Azul:

We don’t just listen to our customers when they have great things to say. Much of our success is also attributable to listening to and working with our customers and incorporating their ideas, their feedback, their results to make our JVM even better. As an example, we are working to make it easy to design robust new systems using modern, general-purpose languages such as Scala without worrying about GC glitches and performance artifacts.
Not ones to sit back and relax with our success, we continue to drive the company forward, evolving our Zing JVM with new ideas, customer feedback, real-world results and new releases. We continuously pursue innovation, both technical and value-based, never losing sight of that fact that our customers will benefit, and continue to benefit, from the great work we do.
A little bit of who we are is what we do.
