Microsoft to Acquire jClarity

Microsoft's own usage of Java has grown in the past few years with services like Azure HDInsight and Minecraft, Montgomery noted.

Microsoft has snapped up London-based jClarity in an effort to bump up the performance of Java workloads on Azure.

A couple decades ago, news like this would have been nearly unthinkable, given Microsoft's long-since-settled legal feud with Sun Microsystems over Java, back when the Redmond company was battling open-source alternatives to Windows and (later) its.NET development platform and C# programming language. Further, companies like Adobe, Daimler, and others are using Java production workloads on the platform which likely pushed the company towards this acquisition.

"Microsoft Azure and jClarity engineers will be working together to make Azure a better platform for our Java customers, and internal teams, improving the experience and performance of the platform for Java developers and end-users", Montgomery notes.

This alpha test will exclusively be focused around Gunfight, the new 2v2 game mode that the team revealed early this year. The alpha will be open to all players (even those without PlayStation Plus) and will take place for one weekend only.

And, of course, let's not forget that more than half of Azure's compute workload is now Linux-based. After growth in Java workloads on the cloud service, the company is acquiring jClarity to optimize the workloads.

jClarity was started in 2012 and has between two and 10 employees, according to its LinkedIn profile.

"Microsoft leads the world in backing developers and their communities, and after speaking to their engineering and program leadership, it was a no-brainer to enter formal discussions", Verberg said in a separate blog post on jClarity's website Monday. With Microsoft's support, we anticipate being able to contribute back in new and exciting ways.

Vernerg said jClarity will contact its customers in the coming weeks to guide them on product and support matters.
