Architecting Low-Latency Java Systems at Massive Scale (with Azul Systems)

Join NYJavaSIG on May 27 6:30 PM EDT

Java dominates enterprise deployments, but low-latency scenarios are still a challenge. Think of credit card authorization, mobile sessions handling, electronic trading as of typical examples that have to process thousands of operations per second within sub-millisecond boundaries.

Due to the nature of garbage collectors, Java 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. That's the primary reason why many do not see Java as a viable option for such workloads.

In this session, we're going to review a Java-powered software stack based on Azul Zing and Apache Ignite that makes JVM behavior predictable, scales out linearly and allows the use of Java for high-throughput low-latency scenarios.
