Big Blue comes through for Java gear

As expected, start-up Azul Systems has won some big-time backing from IBM.

The two companies announced Wednesday that IBM Global Services will provide support in North America for special-purpose hardware from Azul that's designed to make Java programs run faster. The network-attached Azul Compute Appliances are scheduled for general availability this spring.

Perhaps it's just serendipity, Big Blue coming to the aid of a young company whose name is the Spanish word for "blue."
