Azul Systems Released: Next generation Java-based 768 core server
The third-generation Java-based computing appliance has been announced by Azul Systems. This Azul JVM is easily loaded on the conventional server. To execute the compute appliance, the VM bytecode and the application’s Java bytecode gets ported over a
standard Ethernet network.
However, using a new deployment model called network attached processing the capacity of the compute appliances
can be accessed. Moreover, the Azul JVM has replaced the conventional JVM.
Advantages of this approach are:
• One of the most important advantages is that every JVM while executing on the compute appliance can achieve 10X or greater scalability.
• Multiple applications can be executed simultaneously by the compute appliances therefore a lot of virtual compute capacity is made by them. Each application accesses shared capacity of the compute appliances even though it remains isolated on its own dedicated server.
