But it gets even better. Certain Graal operations have been clocked up to three times faster. And, applications may consume as little as five times less memory than traditional VMs. For example, services have been measured in specific environments (such as within server-less infrastructure) to start 100 times faster.
When we first looked at Graal, it quickly became apparent that the technology offered a lot of potential, both as a technique to advance NetSuite’s Cloud architecture as well as evolve the SuiteScript API. It did not disappoint. Because Graal is built cloud-native from the ground up, the technology was surprisingly easy to integrate into NetSuite’s prototype cloud. Going from research to beta and then production in NetSuite 2019 Release 2 took a small team less than a year. It has been rock solid since going live.
To sum it up, NetSuite Platform developers can realize improved productivity by leveraging ECMAScript and SuiteScript 2.1 capabilities powered by Graal technology in the NetSuite Cloud.
