About this talk
The traditional Java VM (HotSpot), with all its strength, comes at a disadvantage in a Kubernetes world as it requires fast startup time and low memory usage (for higher cluster density).
Historically, Java has been optimized for throughput and high dynamism at the expense of boot time and memory usage (JIT warm-up and fixed high memory cost, java frameworks using lots of reflection and metadata gathering at startup time, etc). Enter Quarkus and GraalVM, an Ahead of Time close-world approach to immutable deployments that is rocking the Java ecosystem to its core.
Come discover how they can enable Java applications to rival the startup time and density of Golang apps, while still allowing you to leverage the benefits of the entire Java ecosystem.
