The Zing™ JVM Supercharges Java-Based Healthcare Applications
Java-based applications are critical to many healthcare operations. As more organizations deploy electronic medical records, practice management systems and performance-intensive imaging and analytical systems, Java performance and reliability become more critical. Long pause times, poor scalability and out-of-memory errors can’t be tolerated when patient outcomes are at stake.
Unfortunately, Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) – the very bytecode engine that gives Java its power and versatility -- are at the root of much of the difficulties in meeting these demands, since Java infrastructures haven’t kept pace with the latest technology trends or advancements over the last decade. Traditional Java infrastructures are limited in a number of problematic ways that prevent applications from meeting business goals. These include rigid limits on heap size, instability under load, management complexity and extensive tuning requirements.
