It’s What Cloud-Native Should Be
Payara Cloud is the next generation of cloud-native application runtime. It offers an easier way to run your Jakarta EE apps on the cloud. Simply select your war, click deploy, and watch your apps run on the cloud – automatically, like magic.
Any web application following the Jakarta Web profile specification can be uploaded and it will run in a containerized Payara Micro instance.
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. Save time and effort and deploy your apps faster with the next generation of cloud-native application runtime: Payara Cloud! This interactive demo will take you through the log in to creating your namespace, adding an application, and deploying it.
“We are reimagining what a Jakarta EE runtime is. You bring the war we bring the cloud. Let Payara Cloud deal with infrastructure while you build the code.” – Steve Millidge

Payara Cloud is a 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 a user ’s application.
Eliminating the customer’s costs and reducing the risks of managing Jakarta EE application servers on Cloud.
Payara Cloud is a “Serverless” solution where the user does not need to worry about application servers, instances, domains, hosts, docker containers or any of the traditional concepts.
The user brings their deployment war and Payara Cloud does the rest.
Payara Cloud Features
Use Existing Skills
- Focus on writing code – Payara Cloud handles Kubernetes
- Cloud infrastructure managed on your behalf – just click Deploy
- Builds on benefits of Jakarta EE model
Monitoring and Diagnostics
- View metrics of all applications within the namespace in one place
- Get detailed metrics of individual applications
- Diagnostic information provided for failed application deployments
- Monitoring and diagnostic capabilities to expand with each iteration of the software
- Applications are deployed in separate containers to isolate them from actions of other applications
- Applications within the same namespace can directly communicate with others over the network
- Applications can have partial internet exposure, allowing for private endpoints accessible only by applications in the same namespace
From the Blog
As part of Closed Beta testing, we offeredJakarta EEexpert, Java Champion,bloggerand podcaster,Adam Biena trial of our next-generation cloud-native application runtime, Payara Cloud. He went on to discuss Payara Cloud as an alternative to HelidonandQuarkus; a 'serverless server'. He included it in hisMid-Year 2021 Observations and Reflectionsand created a video with hisinitial thoughts. Read our previous blog, rounding up his comments so far,here. At theJ4Kconference this year, he went into further detail. He told viewers:“I really like the idea [of Payara Cloud]. Why? Because it is the opposite of where everyone is going with smaller and smaller runtimes, you can go that route or another route.” You can now view the video of this talk to watch him demonstrate Payara Cloud live and see how he reached this conclusion.
Watch Adam Bien Trial Payara Cloud! (Video) 24 Jun 2021
Adam Bien is a well-known expert in the world ofJakarta EE. He is a freelancer, author, Java Champion andblogger, providing resources and training materials, and is host of theAirHacks.FM podcast - where he regularly talks to the leading experts in the Java and Jakarta EE community, with recent guests including PayaransLenny PrimakandRudy De Busscher. As a long time user of the Payara Platform - regularlyrecommending it as a solution to GlassFish problems - we were keen to offer him a trial ofPayara Cloud, our next generation of cloud-native application runtime. Payara Cloud offers an easier way to run Jakarta EE apps on the cloud, allowing you to simply select your war, click deploy, and watch your apps run - automatically, like magic! As part of our Payara Cloud Closed Beta testing, we offered him a trial of the software. He created a concise video showing his experience using serverless MicroProfile and Jakarta EE on Payara Cloud. Watch it now to find out what his first thoughts were in his own words.
Do You Really Need Kubernetes? 09 Jun 2021
These days, it seems Kubernetes is a topic that is never too far from people's lips. The tool, and the associated tools built around it, are talked about so often it seems it's the only subject important to developers these days - especially as the IT world becomes increasingly orientated towards cloud and microservices. But in spite of all the conversation around Kubernetes... do you really need Kubernetes for your environment? Or is it just another case of the next 'new and shiny' object, with people distracted by the novelty and possibility, rather than the facts? In this blog, I'll take a closer look at why Kubernetes might be a case of the hype outweighing the helpfulness in most cases.
May Payara Roadmap Overview Webinar 10 May 2021
We kicked off the year with the Payara Roadmap for 2021. In this January webinar, Steve provided: detail on benefits of the Jakarta EE model; how the Payara Platform is evolving and moving toward Payara 6; updates and progress of the Payara Cloud project, our new PaaS product; and latest news regarding the next major OpenJDK release - JDK 17 Long Term Support (LTS) and what that means for Payara Platform. Find a full-write up here:https://blog.payara.fish/payara-roadmap-2021 In this May update, Steve gives a check-in on how we are progressing along our roadmap, with a retrospective on the year so far and details on what the rest of the year is set to look like. He provides a snapshot of where we are in relation to the plans and projects he mapped out at the beginning of the year. Steve also discusses the results of the Payara Platform 2021 Survey.
