How Payara Cloud Works

Reimagining Jakarta EE Runtimes

Kubernetes vs Payara Cloud

As an app developer we know you’re expected to do everything from writing the code to deploying the application. We also know the potential problems you face when provisioning the Jakarta EE runtime, TLS and SSL certificates, the Pod, setting up your containers, and the nightmare of making it all work with Kubernetes…

And so we’re creating an easier way to run your apps on the cloud.  Payara Cloud is a “serverless” runtime that runs and scales Jakarta EE/MicroProfile applications seamlessly. Unlike building an application server deployment on a Cloud Infrastructure as a Service or on raw Kubernetes, Payara Cloud takes care of provisioning infrastructure, installation, configuration, deployment and scaling of your application.

Try this easier way to run your apps on the cloud. Save time and effort and deploy your apps faster with the next generation of cloud-native application runtime: Payara Cloud!

Before you sign up, this recorded demo will take you through the log in to creating your namespace, adding an application, and deploying it.

You can also watch our short bite sized getting started videos to learn about connecting to a database, defining a custom domain and search logs.

Java expert Adam Bien tried out Payara Cloud and said:

“What I really like about this approach is, we have Helidon, Quarkus. They try to shift the deployment to the build time. Payara Cloud is completely different. It uses what application servers do the best: the separation of the infrastructure from the business logic.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my applications run on Payara Cloud?

If you are running Java EE / Jakarta EE Web Profile-based applications they can be deployed to the cloud with Payara Cloud.

Can I cluster using Payara Cloud?

Clustering capabilities are currently in development for a future feature of Payara Cloud.

Is Payara Cloud secure? 

Your applications deploy in separate containers to isolate them from the actions of other applications. Your applications only have partial internet exposure, which allows only applications in the same namespace to access them via private endpoints. Payara Cloud also generates SSL certificates for your applications. 

Is there an on-premises version of Payara Cloud? 

Payara Cloud is currently a cloud-only product by design with a possible on-premise version developed in the future. 

Is there downtime when I upgrade my application? 

Rolling upgrades are currently in development for a future feature of Payara Cloud to eliminate downtime of your application during upgrades. 

Can I have multiple users on my Payara Cloud account? 

Support for multiple users with different access levels is currently in development for a future feature of Payara Cloud. At this time, multiple users would need to access the environment using the same username and password. 


How do I pick the appropriate runtime size for my application? 

The runtime size specifies the amount of resources to allocate for this instance and count against the included vCPU of your subscription. The following CPU has been reserved: 

  • Small –  0.25 vCPU 
  • Medium – 0.5 vCPU 
  • Large – 1 vCPU 
  • XL (available in Standard and Premium subscriptions only)  – 2 vCPU 

Does Payara Cloud also host Database instances? 

No, you should maintain a database installation yourself, in the cloud or on-premise. You can configure your database instances within your application.

Can I run multiple applications? 

Yes, within Payara Cloud you can deploy multiple applications within the same namespace and you can create multiple Namespaces to host several applications.

  • Deploying to Payara Cloud from a GitHub Action Workflow 05 Sep 2022

    Payara Cloud provides an easy-to-use user interface to allow your application to run in a managed cloud environment. While this is very convenient for configuration and troubleshooting work, integration in continuous deployment pipelines calls for something else.  Our answer is deploying to Payara Cloud using a GitHub Action Workflow and Payara Cloud Command Line (PCL). 

  • Ignore Infrastructure and Concentrate on Code with Jakarta EE and Payara Cloud 26 Jul 2022

    Java EE, now Jakarta EE, makes it possible for developers to focus purely on the development of a Java enterprise application, solving the business logic without needing to think about infrastructure and operations when writing code. Payara Cloud extends this philosophy by also eliminating the need to worry about infrastructure and operations when preparing your application to run in the cloud. Together, Jakarta EE and Payara Cloud let you focus on writing code and delivering solutions to business challenges from the moment you write your first piece of code to the day people are using your application successfully on the cloud. We are currently offering limited free previews of Payara Cloud to businesses - follow the link below:

  • Payara at the JakartaOne Livestream 13 Jan 2022

    The JakartaOne Livestream is a huge event in the Jakarta EE and MicroProfile calendar. Organised by the Eclipse Foundation, it is a one-day virtual conference for developers and technical business leaders. It brings insight into the current state and future of Jakarta EE and related technologies focused on developing cloud-native Java applications. 

  • VIDEO: Adam Bien - The Future is Now (Payara Cloud) 09 Nov 2021

    Adam Bien explored the possibilities of Payara Cloud in his recent talk for the 2021 J4K conference!  He used the Payara Cloud demonstration environment - with the caveat that the user interface is not completed yet - to demonstrate how our next generation application server creates a "serverless" environment; moving the "plumbing behind the scenes" so you only have to worry about selecting your WAR, clicking deploy, and running it on the cloud! 

  • Official Microsoft Azure Sample for Payara Micro 07 Oct 2021

    Payara Server has a strong relationship withMicrosoft Azureand theJava at Microsoft team - and now, there's an official best practice Azure Sample for running Payara MicroonAzure Kubernetes Service(AKS)!  This is a reaction to more and more Azure customers wanting to run Payara on Azure, with many moving from GlassFishto Payara Micro on AKS. It also precedes the next step for Azure and Payara:  releasingPayara Cloud as a PaaS running on Azure.
