I have been looking into the limitations the GC imposes to really large HEAP sizes in the JVM.
Nowadays it's easy for big corporations (which use Java a lot) to buy servers with 512GB (or more) of RAM.
How can they rely on JAVA as GC pauses can affect their applications so bad.Naturally not a problem is one runs 20 servers instead of 1.
And if we are talking here about an application which needs tens, hundreds of GB to run it is probably a mission critical one.Not necessarily. Could be used for analysis or data modeling or other internal only uses.
What are the computer scientists at Oracle doing/investigating to solve that? Is there any hope? Will JVM still be THE dominant platform in big corporations?I doubt they are doing anything. Their databases already support a vast array of businesses so they probably have a very good idea what "big" companies really do.
I have found ZING (from Azul Systems), but I would like to know when all these improvements will come to Oracle JVM (Free version as well)."Big" companies can afford to pay for solutions.
