Platform vendor Azul launches Java devops and migration guide

The latest Wiley guide is to be OpenJDK Migration for Dummies, written by Java platform vendor Azul to promote its alternative to devops and migration teams.

Simon Ritter, deputy chief technology officer at Azul Systems, said the abilities of Java have reinforced its continued usefulness in the enterprise but costs can be brought down while still optimising application performance, for example.

“OpenJDK is the foundation of Java. This book aims to bring together information about these aspects to show how straightforward it is to move from Oracle Java SE to a build of OpenJDK,” he said in the related announcement.

Moving to an OpenJDK build from Oracle Java SE could offer organisations “significant” cost savings while enabling support for more Java versions, operating systems and architectures, according to Ritter.

The guide outlines migration steps and tips to choosing relevant channel partners when working with the Java programming language and runtime platform for large-scale applications and infrastructure in public cloud and private datacentre environments.

According to Azul, “recent licensing and pricing changes” for Oracle Java SE are encouraging more organisations to move to OpenJDK distributions that offer similar functionality, equivalent or better support, and lower cost.

Controlling cloud costs has become a major concern for many enterprises.

Azul’s co-founder and chief executive officer Scott Sellers was recently quoted in a Forbes opinion piece as saying that everyone “loves to spin up” cloud workloads to achieve their business objectives but “shrinks in their seats” when the CEO asks whose job it is to optimise spending – suggesting a need for better cloud management and platforms.

According to Sellers, “true value-optimised cloud transformation requires a strategic, cross-functional approach backed by executive support”.
