Philip Reames is a experienced software engineer with technical lead and management experience.
In this short video, Philip talks about Falcon, a new Just-in-time compiler (JIT) for the Zing VM. The goal is to replace C2. It is built around LLVM.
- Azul’s new “Falcon” Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler is a new, highly optimized runtime compiler for Azul’s Zing runtime for Java (JVM)
- Falcon is based on LLVM, the compiler infrastructure project backed by dozens of companies and hundreds of contributors advancing the latest capabilities in modern compiler technology
- Falcon delivers substantial performance gains over Java’s legacy “C2” JIT compiler
- Zing with Falcon achieves better application SLA metrics, reduces operating costs, and results in an improved customer experience
