Azul Systems, the award-winning leader of enterprise server appliances for business critical Java™ applications, today announced the Managed Runtime Initiative.
The Initiative is an effort to identify, develop, and deliver enhanced interfaces and functionality across vertical components of the systems stack in order to improve the execution of managed runtime, such as Java, Ruby, and .NET. By enhancing interfaces between the managed runtime, the operating system kernel, and the underlying hypervisor, dramatic performance and scalability improvements can be realized.
As part of the launch of the Initiative, Azul is contributing an open source reference implementation based on enhancements to OpenJDK and the Linux operating system.
