  • 20 November, 2009 14:51

<p>Azul Systems, the award-winning leader of enterprise server appliances for business-critical Java™ applications and GreenHat Consulting, an industry leading consulting and integration organisation that assists Australia’s top 100 enterprises, today announced a partnership where GreenHat Consulting will sell and support Azul Compute Appliances in Australia, New Zealand and the broader Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>Azul Compute Appliances enable business-critical Java-based applications to achieve unprecedented levels of scalability, throughput and response times without the complex setup, management or high operational costs associated with traditional computing models. Designed and optimised for heavy Java workloads such as web portals, business analytics, trading platforms and financial and risk analysis applications, Azul appliances eliminate performance issues caused by Java-related challenges such as garbage collection pauses and memory limitations.</p>
<p>Enterprise clients using business-critical Java applications can now quickly, easily and cost-effectively realise tremendous improvements in performance and throughput – all while reducing the total cost of ownership by up to 50 per cent.</p>
<p>“We are pleased to partner with GreenHat to distribute our proven solution to the enterprise sector in Australia and New Zealand,” said Patrick J. Conte, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Field Operations. “This region understands the advantages and challenges of Java-based applications, but has yet to come across a solution that will deliver on the promise of performance and scalability. This partnership changes that. We are very confident in GreenHat’s ability to assist local enterprises cost-effectively achieve significant improvements to business-critical Java applications through the use of our appliances.”</p>

The ability to eliminate Java application performance issues like garbage collection pauses and memory limitations while maximising the ROI of mission-critical applications is very compelling.”</p>
