Azul Wins Gold Stevie Award for Innovations in Business Technology

Azul, the only company 100% focused on Java, announced today Azul Platform Prime has won top honors in the Cloud Application/Service category for the 22nd annual Stevie American Business Awards.

Azul Platform Prime is a commercial distribution of OpenJDK that helps organizations reduce cloud infrastructure costs and improve application performance. Prime was recognized with a Gold Stevie award in the Cloud/Application Service category for its superior performance, consistency and efficiency. Together, Prime's capabilities enable organizations to slash cloud compute and server costs by 20%, and proactively prevent overprovisioning of cloud instances to meet high peak demands of their applications. Platform Prime is ideal for demanding digital, business-critical workloads, and for companies with large fleets of Java-based applications or infrastructure, where performance SLAs must be met and customer experience is essential to preserving topline revenue without creating untenable infrastructure costs.

The Stevie American Business Awards recognize business innovation in nearly every industry worldwide. This year, more than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted.

"While growth in much of the world economy has recovered slowly from the COVID-19 pandemic, the American economy continues to show remarkable resilience and growth," said Stevie Awards president Maggie Miller. "Our 2024 Stevie winners have contributed to that successful recovery through their innovation, persistence and hard work. We ongratulate all our winners in the 2024 ABAs and look forward to celebrating their achievements during our June 11 awards banquet in New York."

"Technical and business leaders are looking for solutions that solve two related, but seemingly competing, priorities: deliver innovative cloud-based applications and optimize operational costs," said Scott Sellers, co-founder and CEO of Azul. "Azul Platform Prime does exactly that by delivering an optimized Java runtime that runs code faster and uses less compute, thus lowering an organization's cloud bill. We deeply appreciate the recognition from the Stevies Awards for the great work our team does."
