Azul with John Ceccarelli

The Java Virtual Machine is an abstract machine that makes it possible for you to write Java code once and run it across multiple devices and operating system types. While you can use the OpenJDK it comes with various issues like Security Vulnerabilities and compliance.
Azul is a company that specializes in Java for the enterprise. It has the largest Java engineering team after Oracle. John Ceccarelli is the Senior Director of Product Management at Azul Systems responsible for Azul Platform Prime which is their hyper optimized build of OpenJDK. He joins the show to discuss Azul’s optimization of OpenJDK, specifically the JIT compiler and the garbage collector. We also discussed the different use cases like the financial sector and other infrastructure areas like Cassandra and Kafka.
