VIRTUAL MACHINES AND COMPILERS
These techhologies are our core specialization
We executed testing of all Java Virtual Machine (JVM) from Sun Microsystem, developed programming tools, launched 14 releases of conformance suite JCK in partnership with manufacturer. This experience is succesfully applied to imlementation of system software projects.
Port of Java platform to original VLIW architecture of Russian CPU family Elbrus. It is a fully secure implementation, free of malicious logic and backdoors in hardware and software, that supports all built-in security features of native Java. Already more than 10 versions has been launched with consistently increased performance. Porting new Java-based libraries and applications is complementary activity.
- Developed on the base of OpenJDK JVM
- JIT (just-in-time) compiler is implemented optimized for Elbrus platform
- Special libraries are ported for Elbrus architecture (EML, OpenCV, etc.)
- Set of widely spread open source Java applications are ported and demonstrate high effectiveness (Apache Tomcat, Apache Derby, Eclipse, Apache Jmetter, NetBeans, etc.)
J2SE class libraries (OpenJDK), Java virtual machines, Just-In-Time compilers, C, C++
- Porting and adaptation of legacy compilers and interpreters
- Validation of correct processing all of functions
- Optimization of quality of the code generated by the compilers
- Performance improvement
- Study of the effective compilation of a dynamically typed language for VLIW CPU architecture
Technologies: Chromium, Firefox, C/C++, node.js, asm.
Implemented JVM is a cornerstone of Customer’s patented Java server virtualization technology specifically tailored to x86 enterprise application environments. The technology features high reliability and performance with superior cost-efficiency and manageability. Various Java applications are operating on this technology stack automatically and transparently. Customer built a portfolio of services and products around isolated Java Containers running within single JVM instance. JVM performance is competitive to contemporary Oracle JDK.
- technology utilizes arbitrary inexpensive, off-the-shelf servers, assuring the lowest possible cost of entry
- hot-swappable, can work in fully redundant mode to tolerate failures
- technology is embedded under the covers, no apps re-engineering is required
- the Java platform implementation allows to switch between available class libraries on startup
Apache Harmony DRLVM, J2SE class libraries (OpenJDK), Java virtual machines, Just-In-Time compilers, Garbage Collectors; C, C++; Mercurial, TeamCity, etc
