How to Run a Payara Server Deployment Group on Microsoft Azure
Microsoft Azure is ideal for creating traditional Payara Platform domain deployments where existing applications are migrated to the cloud. New applications can also utilize this deployment model where rapid elasticity is not required and a normal application server topology is preferred.
Microsoft Azure Platform is a very versatile environment. There are several options to run your application on the platform, including:
- IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service
- PaaS: Platform as a Service
- CaaS: Container as a Service
In this user guide, we focus on the Infrastructure as a Service where the Microsoft Azure Platform provides a lot of capabilities for building a traditional compute environment on the cloud. Azure provides compute capacity, scale on-demand, and a pricing model whereby you only pay for what you utilize.
