What is Zing? A Scalable, Elastic, High-Performance Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
Zing™ is a 100% Java-compatible JVM based on Oracle HotSpot. Zing is optimized for Linux server deployments and designed for enterprise applications and workloads that require large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent response times and high sustained throughput, Zing is the only JVM that can elastically grow its application memory heap based on real-time demand and still guarantee response times.
As an example of the dramatic capabilities of Zing, consider the real-world results shown in the picture below. Zing delivered an average response time 40X lower than a tuned Oracle JVM, and a 1000X reduction in worst-case response time. Same application, unchanged code – different JVMs.
Zing delivers a clear performance advantage for your Java applications.

At its core, Zing uses the Azul C4 (Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector) which eliminates "stop-the-world" pauses which limit the scalability of all traditional JVMs. Zing also includes a management and monitoring platform with a zero-overhead, always-on visibility tool called Zing Vision and the Zing Resource Controller management tool.
The Zing JVM is simple to install and requires no coding change to the application. Because Zing is both elastic and self-healing, tuning is typically reduced to just a few parameters. Simply point your application or startup scripts to use the Zing JVM, and you're running on the most elastic, scalable JVM with the fastest time-to-deployment for any size application.
