Azul announces rapid expansion in China, doubling clients and workers

Azul announced that it has rapidly expanded throughout China, doubling its customers, partners and employees in the country. Chinese companies are increasingly selecting Azul to improve the performance of their banking, securities trading, mobile and ecommerce applications, as well as to reduce infrastructure and cloud costs and improve profitability.

Azul’s significant momentum is driven by increased demand for its Java runtime products Azul Platform Prime and Azul Platform Core. “China is a strategic market for Azul, and our continued investments in the country are delivering rapid growth and substantial customer value,” commented Stanley Zhang, managing director of Greater China, Azul.

“Java is at the center of mission-critical business apps inside the data center and the cloud, and Azul provides high-performance and cost-efficient Java runtimes to clients in China.”

Where best can Azul Platform Prime be leveraged?

Azul is experiencing strong demand for Azul Platform Prime, a high-throughput, low latency Java runtime. Azul has doubled its client base in China since the start of 2021, and counts three of the top 10 securities firms and one of the top five futures firms as Azul customers.

Azul Platform Prime is ideal for virtually any use case that requires fast performance – ensuring a smooth customer experience for shoppers, profitable securities trading execution, big data platforms, enterprise search, or mobile apps that prioritize seamless performance.

“We serve 18B daily advertising transactions using our Java-based ad servers. We are delighted to use Azul Platform Prime, having seen improvement in our ability to meet strict SLAs on our ad-serving infrastructure,” said Xuehua Shen, CTO and co-founder of iPinYou.
