Azul Systems (Azul), has  announced that Spotex, the FX ECN has deployed Zing®  within its trading infrastructure.  Zing is Azul’s Java Virtual Machine (JVM) designed for Java-based applications and systems that require consistent low latency and high scalability. Since Zing has been integrated into Spotex’s infrastructure, Garbage Collection (GC) and other JVM-related pauses have been eradicated. Scott Sellers, CEO and President of Azul Systems, said: “Spotex’s decision to run its ECN on Zing highlights why it is so important to use the right JVM for Java applications that require low latency and scalability. Trading is an ultra-competitive market, so using a technology like Zing, which removes the shortcomings of Java such as inconsistent response times and application jitter, quickly and easily gives emerging providers like Spotex a unique advantage.”
