Azul Systems has announced general availability of Zing 5 with support for an additional Linux distribution. Effective immediately, the Zing Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is now fully qualified on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11.
Azul Systems delivers high-performance and elastic Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) with high scalability, manageability and production-time visibility. Azul's products enable organizations to simplify Java deployments with fewer instances, greater response time consistency, and better operating costs.
"Enterprises continue to deploy more and more of their business-critical Java applications on Linux," said Scott Sellers, President and CEO, Azul Systems. "Zing 5 is the industry's only JVM specifically architected and optimized for x86 Linux. Now organizations that use SLES 11 can gain the benefits of pauseless operation and predictable low-latency performance as they deploy Java-based applications using the Zing JVM."
Pricing and Availability Zing support for SLES 11 is generally available for x86-based servers. Specific models are listed on the Azul Systems Web site. Pricing is based on an annual subscription per server.
