Most enterprises now understand the power of data science and machine learning. The ability to tap into the enormous amounts of data that companies possess can lead to significantly improved efficiencies and cost savings.
In this webinar, presented by Azul Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter, he looks at how Java can be used for these types of applications.
He starts with a review of data science and machine learning and then moves on to look at various open-source frameworks, and how they can be used to quickly develop powerful data science applications.
Customer-facing systems and key enterprise applications are experiencing unprecedented levels of demand across numerous industries.
The financial services sector is reporting occasional outages of key platforms, credit risk system challenges, and renewed demand for outsourced trading. The telecoms field is dealing with significant increases in peak data use, and the public sector is seeing unprecedented demand for online services.
Now, more than ever, enterprises and public institutions have to maintain and even increase performance with their key software infrastructure, while containing costs and optimizing their IT resources.
In this webinar, Java Champion Simon Ritter reviews how rapidly changing levels of demand affect Java application system capacity and performance, specifically memory utilization, code performance, and speed of application warmup, drawing examples from the finance, tech, and retail sectors.
He looks at how key applications can deliver the levels of service required with costs minimized, whether from black swan shock events like Covid-19 or more predictable diurnal and seasonal volatilities.
Reduce your IT costs: whether your Java applications run on-premise or in the Cloud, minimizing resource utilization means lower operating costs and more revenue opportunities.
In this webinar, Java Champion and Azul Deputy CTO Simon Ritter shows how the Azul Zing JVM can optimize and improve Java performance, handle unplanned spikes in demand using your current capacity, and reduce OPEX and CAPEX by 30-50%.
Today’s business climate means costs must reduce – quickly too – and existing capacity used better. Implementing Azul Zing helps businesses both reduce spend and improve performance.
Using examples of common computing platforms like Cassandra and Elasticsearch, Simon will show how Azul Zing helps more transactions process faster on fewer nodes.

In this webinar, Java Champion Simon Ritter outlines how Oracle has changed the licensing of their JDK, meaning that long-term support (LTS) for commercial Java use is no longer free.
Fortunately, the OpenJDK project has emerged as a viable option, and provides the source code for releases back to JDK 6. However, to deploy Java requires a binary distribution to be built from OpenJDK source code, of which Zulu is one.
Simon also discusses what the essential aspects are of a secure, production-ready Java distribution.
After watching this webinar you’ll have a clear picture of how Zulu Enterprise provides a very cost-effective alternative to the Oracle JDK with identical, if not better, levels of support.
In this webinar, Java Champion Simon Ritter explores the changes to the language, in the form of records and pattern matching, as well as some of the 69 new API elements like the foreign memory access API. He also looks at some of the things that impact the runtime for applications, like help NullPointerExceptions and a new packaging tool.
In late 2017, Oracle announced a faster release plan for new Java features which contained quite a few surprises. In this webinar, Azul Systems Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter places this new schedule into context and explains what these changes mean to you in practical terms.
Get the inside scoop on JDK 9 and beyond, and learn how you can obtain better Java support on YOUR schedule – for less!
Azul Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter presents: How to install Azul’s Zulu JDK on the Raspberry Pi, How to use it to develop and deploy applications, How to get even better performance using Azul’s C2 Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler.
Last year Oracle announced a new, faster release plan for the Java Development Kit (JDK) which has a number of significant implications for the Java community: Faster release cycles will bring most Java versions to end-of-life status in a matter of months. Free public updates for older versions of the JDK will end – access to security and bug fixes will only be obtainable via support contracts
With two releases every year we now have faster access to new features than at any time in Java’s 23-year history. Oracle has also made changes to how it licenses the Oracle JDK and has introduced a second binary, the Oracle OpenJDK.
How this does affect your use of Java? How will you get access to security patches and bug fixes?
In this webinar, Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter looks at the future features of Java to help you build a workable Java support strategy to ensure continued easy use.
Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter explores how you can make your Java applications start up fast, stay fast and run even faster. He uses real workloads and shows the ways you can solve common Java performance problems and improve performance without changing a line of code.
As part of Oracle’s convergence of the Oracle JDK and OpenJDK, both Flight Recorder and Mission Control were contributed as open-source to the OpenJDK project. In this webinar, Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter explores how these tools can be used with Zulu JDK 8 to monitor the performance of your application, make informed choices about how to modify JVM settings and manage the Java runtime.
Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter explores how Azul has developed a series of improvements to reduce the ‘warm-up’ time of applications running on the JVM. The initial approach was what we call ReadyNow!, which records a profile of a running application to use when the application is restarted. More recently we have improved this further by including what we call Compile Stashing. This records not just the profile of the application but the sections of code generated by the JIT. We’ll explain how this gives you lightning quick startup times for your applications.
Azul’s Deputy CTO and Java Champion Simon Ritter explores what’s new with the Zing JVM and how Java developers and operations teams can take full advantage of Zing’s latest enhancements.
The Zing JVM was built to eliminate the latency and performance issues that can plague other Java runtimes. Garbage collection, JIT compilation and startup time have all been enhanced in Zing, helping Azul to deliver great performance while helping our customers reduce both capex and opex. Until recently, Zing derived some of its performance advantages through the use of a Linux kernel module that required a privileged account to install and configure. That requirement has been eliminated. Today Zing is now far easier to deploy and manage, making it ideal for containerized deployments and microservice-based architectures.
Java Champion Simon Ritter provides an introduction to building enterprise applications using microservices, Java, Docker and Kubernetes. How the JVM impacts the performance profiles of microservices is also explored, along with ways to minimize latency and increase throughput.
