Zing® is a Java runtime that enables your production applications to operate in business real time. Zing solves performance and consistency-robbing Java garbage collection (GC) problems. With Zing, Java apps can scale to high levels of performance with unprecedented response time consistency and meet your most demanding SLAs – without application changes or even recompilation. Zing allows your applications to handle far more users and transactions on existing infrastructure. It is a game-changing innovation that opens up new business capabilities and opportunities not practical with other Java software platforms.
For low latency systems, Zing solves the Java "warm-up" problem using Azul's innovative ReadyNow! technology.
Zing is a JVM that is compatible with the Java SE specification. Zing is optimized for Linux server deployments and designed for enterprise applications and workloads that require any combination of large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent response times or high sustained throughput.

Built and distributed by Azul Systems, Zulu is a commercialized build of OpenJDK, a 100% open source JVM for Linux (including Docker), Windows, Mac OS X and the Cloud. Zulu is fully compatible and compliant with the Java Standard Edition (Java SE) specification, verified using the OpenJDK Community Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK), with further rigorous testing performed by Azul’s global Quality Assurance team.
Zulu Enterprise is a commercialized, fully-supported build of OpenJDK with a robust matrix of tiered support options and supported operating environments, enabling broad deployment across the enterprise. Zulu Enterprise is ideal for companies who have key applications running on various versions of Java, including older versions such as Java 6, and have a need for cost-effective, high-quality ongoing support.

jHiccup is an open source tool designed to measure the pauses and stalls (or “hiccups”) associated with an application’s underlying Java runtime platform. The new tool captures the aggregate effects of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), operating system, hypervisor (if used) and hardware on application stalls and response time. To get started, download jHiccup. Sources are available on github.
Zing Platform Edition (Zing PE) is an integrated solution that combines the WebSphere Application Server with an optimized version of Zing. Zing PE provides unparalleled application scalability, response time consistency and sustained throughput. Zing PE is the best way to run high performance, latency-sensitive and data-intensive WebSphere applications. Zing PE lowers both maximum latency and eliminates garbage collection as an operational issue -- improving service delivery for existing WebSphere applications without requiring any coding changes or recompilation.
With Zing PE you can use more memory, and more cores, to meet the needs of your business – without worrying about performance glitches and stalls, and without the need for server sprawl.
Zing PE allows your WebSphere-based business to focus on new revenue opportunities and innovation. You can handle far more users and transactions on your existing hardware and software without long tuning cycles. Plus, you free up development resources to deliver new capabilities and services instead of managing production performance issues.You can download the Zing PEdata sheet here »
The Vega 3 Series provides the unique business benefits delivered by the Azul solution, and are the fastest path to maximizing the ROI of business-critical applications. Without changing application code or architecture, applications can deliver 5X to 50X greater scalability and throughput, while providing consistent performance even under unpredictable load. The Azul solution also reduces server sprawl by an order of magnitude, simplifying existing deployments and reducing datacenter costs by 30% or more.
The new Series of Azul Compute platforms are built around the Vega 3 processor, the first 54-core chip designed and optimized for Java workloads. The highly scalable Azul Virtual Machine allows an individual application instance to scale to 670 GB of memory and hundreds of processor cores without changing the application code. This breakthrough scalability is achieved with unique capabilities such as hardware-assisted Pauseless Garbage Collection, which eliminates the impact of garbage collection-related application pauses, and Optimistic Thread Concurrency, which minimizes the impact of scalability bottlenecks caused by synchronization and lock contentions.
