This time we are gathering together with Silicon Valley Java Performance meetup group to discuss how in-memory computing combined with a pauseless Java Virtual Machine results in a Java-powered solution that enables consistent low millisecond response times at unlimited scale.
The session is to be led by Gil Tene, Azul Systems CTO, Java RockStar and Java Champion, who will cover JVM aspects of the solution. Denis Magda, Apache Ignite PMC member and GridGain Head of DevRel, will join Gil to explain how the solution scales horizontally across all the available memory space.
5:30-6:00: Arriving and socializing (come early for best pizza selection!)
7:20-8:00: Raffle and Q&A
Here's a full abstract of what to be covered, followed by an interactive Q&A:
Even though Java applications dominate enterprise deployments, there is one area that is hard to conquer with a standard Java software stack. The area is represented by low-latency use cases that impose strict and non-negotiable rules obligating a selected software stack to process thousands of operations per second within sub-millisecond or microseconds boundaries for high percentiles. Think of credit cards authorization, payments processing, telecom as of typical examples of such applications.
The standard Java software stack usually fails due to the nature of default garbage collectors that can initiate a stop-the-world pause at any moment in time breaking low-latency requirements and making the behavior of the whole system unpredictable and uncontrollable.
In this session, we're going to explore how Azul Zing combined with Apache Ignite enables Java for low-latency applications. The latter eliminates stop-the-world pauses making the Java runtime fully predictable and reliable while the former boosts the performance by storing and processing data in RAM at a scalable fashion.
Gil Tene is CTO and co-founder of Azul Systems. He has been involved with virtual machine and runtime technologies for the past 25 years. His pet focus areas include system responsiveness and latency behavior. Gil is a frequent speaker at technology conferences worldwide, and an official JavaOne Rock Star. He pioneered the Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector (C4) that powers Azul's continuously reactive Java platforms. In past lives, he also designed and built operating systems, network switches, firewalls, and laser-based mosquito interception systems.
Denis Magda is an open-source enthusiast who started his journey in Sun Microsystems as a developer advocate and presently settled down at Apache Software Foundation in the roles of Apache Ignite committer and PMC member. He is an expert in distributed systems and platforms who actively contributes to Apache Ignite and helps companies to build successful open-source projects. You can be sure to come across Denis at conferences, workshops, and other events sharing his knowledge about the open-source, community building, distributed systems.
