Azul in Problems

Some weeks ago i wrote about the problematic nature of custom build hardware, as general-purpose hardware has similar performance characteristics. It seems that my points wasn’t overly speculative: It looks like Azul has massive problems. Azul puts itself on the block:

Things at Azul Systems are as bad as we feared, according to numerous sources. (..) Meanwhile, Azul is seeking an acquirer.It has stopped work on future products and let go of any non-essential staff. It's also using a recent funding round to pay down debt, hoping to make itself that much more attractive to someone.
