Azul Systems Launches Zulu for Docker

The First Standards-Compliant, Freely Redistributable Java SE 8 Container on Docker

SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 09/23/14 -- Azul Systems Inc. (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced that its OpenJDK-based Zulu 8 offering is now freely available on Docker. Zulu 8 is a 100% open source, fully tested, compatibility verified, and trusted binary distribution of the OpenJDK 8 platform. Azul has also made Zulu versions compliant with earlier Java SE 7 and Java SE 6 standards available on Docker in the same format.

Docker is an open platform designed to enable the rapid development and deployment of distributed applications. Each "Dockerized" application is containerized and completely portable and can be run on any server or easily integrated with other Docker containers. As of mid-September 2014 the company had reported 21 million downloads.

Jay Lyman, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Software at 451 Research, said: "Docker and containerization are taking the enterprise IT world by storm as a better way to package, deploy and move applications, but there is still a lot of work required to make Docker enterprise-ready in terms of security, scale and management. Support for Java SE 8 on Docker is a step in the right direction, giving enterprise Docker users some of the security, stability and compliance assurances they expect."

Scott Sellers, CEO of Azul Systems, said: "Docker is rapidly changing the IT landscape in terms of how Cloud and on-premise applications are delivered, run and managed. With Zulu on Docker, Java programmers and DevOps benefit from free access to a proven and certified Java development kit and runtime, based on the 100% open source OpenJDK, which can be freely redistributed to others via the Docker hub registry."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
