The Payara Platform and Docker

Payara provides several Docker container images (download here). These can be used as-is to run your applications on Payara Server or Payara Micro (the Payara Platform). Or you can create your own Docker images based on them. Check out the following resources to learn more about using the Payara Platform with Docker.

  • Using Container Orchestration Tools with Payara Platform 30 Sep 2019

    Introduction With Container orchestration tools like Kubernetes and Docker Swarm, you can add instances quite easily. Depending on the type of clustering you need or use for your application, some scenarios are easier to implement than others.

  • Deploy Docker Containers On Azure 18 Jun 2019

      Several Cloud Providers have the possibility to run your Payara Platform Docker Images on their infrastructure. In this blog, I will describe to you how you can run your application on Microsoft Azure using a Docker Container. All the steps required to perform this are described using the Azure Portal (web-based application) and the Azure Command line.

  • What Is Kubernetes and How Does It Relate to Docker? 14 Jun 2019

    Kubernetes is most commonly used with Docker managed containers, although it doesn't strictly depend on it. Kubernetes defines a Container Runtime Interface (CRI) that container platforms must implement in order to be compatible. These implementations are colloquially known as "shims". This makes Kubernetes platform agnostic so that instead of Docker you're free to use other platforms with corresponding shims, such as CRI-O or KataContainers.

  • What's New in Payara Platform 5.192 - Docker Nodes 04 Jun 2019

    The concept of a Docker node and instance are introduced in Payara Server 5.192 as a tech preview. The aim of these is to provide better native integration of Payara Server with Docker.

  • Why Use Docker with Payara Platform? Benefits for your Business 15 Mar 2019

    There's a lot of noise revolving around Docker at the moment, and with the current industry focus on the cloud, there's a good reason for that.   I hope you would already know why you might want to use Payara Platform in your business, so in this blog I'm going to focus more on why you'd specifically want to use it with Docker in a "business" context. For a start, if you're unfamiliar with Docker, please refer back to our introductory blog: What is Docker and How is it Used with the Payara Platform for a primer.

  • What is Docker and How is it Used with Payara Server and Payara Micro? 19 Feb 2019

    What is Docker? Docker is a platform which makes it easier to create, deploy and run your applications using containers. A container bundles all the software needed to run it. By packaging the required dependencies, it makes it easy to run it on any machine, regardless of small configuration differences.
