Azul Systems Selected by Bear Stearns

Mountain View, CA - 29 November 2007

Azul Systems today announced that Bear Stearns, a leading global investment banking, securities trading and brokerage firm, has chosen to implement Azul Vega 2 Compute Appliances to cost-effectively scale its derivatives trading applications. Azul Systems’ Vega 2 processor has a Java-optimized instruction set, hardware-assisted garbage collection and support for optimistic thread concurrency.

“Bear Stearns was looking for a highly scaleable technology solution for the Calypso trading application,” said Sandeep Saksena, senior managing director at Bear Stearns . “Azul was chosen for its ability to deliver memory capacity while eliminating the application delays usually associated with large-scale Java deployments.”

“Azul Systems has made long application pause times, poor throughput and inconsistent response times a thing of the past for Java applications,” said Scott Sellers, president and CEO of Azul Systems. “As Bear Stearns and other respected financial institutions have found, Azul ensures flawless performance, a must in today’s highly competitive and cost-sensitive market. Only Azul has been able to bring such a revolutionary offering to market, making traditional computing infrastructures seem cumbersome and antiquated.”
