Zing™ is a 100% Java-compatible JVM based on Oracle HotSpot. Zing is optimized for Linux deployments and designed for enterprise applications and workloads that require large memory, high transaction rates, low latency, consistent response times and high sustained throughput, Zing is the only JVM that can elastically grow its application memory heap based on real-time demand and still guarantee response times.
At its core, Zing uses the Azul C4 (Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector) which eliminates “stop-the-world” pauses which limit the scalability of all traditional JVMs. Zing also includes a management and monitoring platform with a zero-overhead, always-on visibility tool called Zing Vision and the Zing Resource Controller management tool.
