Java specialist Azul has appointed Nextgen as its distributor in the ANZ and ASEAN regions.

"We're seeing rapid growth in demand for the Azul Platform in ANZ and parts of the Asia-Pacific region," said Azul APAC vice president Dean Vaughan.

"Organisations across the region are struggling with out-of-control Java support and cloud costs that eat into their margins and restrict their ability to modernise and secure applications and infrastructure in a dynamic and competitive world," he added.

"Rightsizing compute resources is a key component of a cost-efficient cloud strategy. It's a simple formula – faster apps equals less compute equals a lower cloud bill. Our flagship product, Azul Platform Prime, is ideal for cloud workloads and proven to reduce customers' cloud costs by up to 50%."

Nextgen head of digital enterprise John Pritchard said "At Nextgen, we're focused on working with the world's leading enterprise software providers, and as such, we are highly selective about the technology partners we choose to work with.

"We search for new vendor technologies that complement our existing vendor ecosystems, so we can help our partners in solution selling and differentiating themselves. Azul, the world's largest 100% Java vendor, is a high growth company with a massive opportunity in the DevSecOps market, and therefore an important vendor partner for Nextgen, expanding our DevSecOps offering for our partners and their customers.

"With Java the number one language in DevSecOps for almost 30 years, the number one language for Cloud-native development, the number one language for security, and with 60 billion active JVMs globally, Azul is a strategic fit for Nextgen, with the most performant, secure, and best-value Java available. That in turns makes Nextgen the number one DevSecOps distributor in ANZ.

Azul is looking for additional strategic partners.

"The appointment of Nextgen was a priority for the business. With that relationship in place, we will continue to grow the channel and are accepting new partners now. The investments we've made and the commitment we have given to the channel is attractive and will take us to the next level," said Vaughan.

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
