Java solutions provider partners with Auckland-based software firm

“Chelmer and Azul are both recognized as pioneers in providing leading-edge technologies to the financial community."

Azul Systems, a Java runtime solutions provider, has formed a commercial resale partnership with Chelmer, an Auckland-based software solutions company that provides services and support for front and back office trading systems.

Through the agreement, Chelmer is now able to provide its New Zealand financial services customers with access to Azul Zing, Azul’s Java Virtual Machine (JVM) designed for systems that require consistent low latency and high scalability.

Focused on the financial services market, Chelmer provides standalone infrastructure components in addition to the Chelmer Software Suite (CSS), an end-to-end solution developed for stock broking, wealth management and private banking firms or custodians.

It manages the entire life cycle of investing, from order origination, trading, accounting, stock and cash settlement, portfolio tracking and adjusting, corporate action processing and performance and tax reporting in a multi-currency, multi-asset, multi-market environment.

“Consistent Java performance is a business critical issue for many of our customers which is why we have teamed up with Azul,” says Andy Robertson, Managing Director, Chelmer.

“Azul Zing is seen by many as the de facto choice of Java runtime if you are looking to guarantee application performance and throughput.

“Now that we can deploy Azul’s technology we are able to further mitigate the risk of application downtime and inconsistent performance.”

But because the application was implemented using a legacy JVM, when used in a financial institution with a large number of investor portfolios (i.e. 50,000+) certain business functionalities were unable to complete due to random Garbage Collection (GC) pauses - a common problem for applications that rely on JVMs other than Zing.

To remedy the issue, Chelmer deployed its application on Zing with the results highlighting a reduction in maximum pauses and an enhanced ability to consistently execute at higher loads.

“Chelmer and Azul are both recognized as pioneers in providing leading-edge technologies to the financial community,” says Scott Sellers, CEO and President, Azul Systems.

“With our new resale partnership agreement in place, financial institutions in New Zealand, and across the Asia-Pac region, can realise the compelling business advantages that customers around the world are achieving with Zing.”
