Attend a Erlang Virtual Machine Panel with Humio’s CTO Kresten Krab Thorup

Our co-founder shares how he hacks Erlang’s VM and runs it on the Java Virtual Machine

August 27th, 2020

Humio’s log management solution provides observability into complex Erlang Elixir deployments, but our connection doesn’t stop there.

Humio’s CTO Kresten Krab Thorup founded Erjang, an open source project dedicated to running a VM of Erlang on the Java Virtual Machine.

Running Erlang in Java comes with the benefits of:

  • Gaining performance boost from Java’s features of dynamic compilation and selective inlining

  • Sending large messages becomes cheaper because Erjang does not copy messages between processes

  • You can get better throughput in Erjang than BEAM

Come hear all the implications of his project by attending his upcoming panel on Erlang Virtual Machines at the Code BEAM STO conference on September 11. For the discussion, Kresten is joined by the founder of Rustler, Hans Elias B. Josephsen, and Maxim Kharchenko, the primary author of the Ling, an alternative implementation of the Erlang VM.
