Twitter Shifting More Code to JVM, Citing Performance and Encapsulation As Primary Drivers

The change is partially motivated by oft-cited advantages of the JVM, such as performance and scalability, but is also driven by a desire for better encapsulation of individual services, and other architectural concerns.
