Payara Platform and PAAS Providers
Payara Platform and Jelastic PAAS
Using Payara Platform with Jelastic Saves Time and Money
Jelastic is not immediately the name that comes up when you have a cloud provider in mind. But using Payara Platform with the Jelastic PAAS solution allows you to perform all the typical tasks that you expect:
- Set up a single instance of Payara Server
- Run a Docker image containing Payara Micro in less than a minute
- Clustering can be done very easily – with Payara Server doing all the hard work for you when setting up the Deployment group on the different instances
- Jelastic billing based on actual resources used by your notes (not the theoretical maximum of your configured environment)

From the Payara Blog
There is a lot of interest in the server-side Java community around using ahead of time (AOT) native compilation provided by Graal Substrate VM to drive down memory usage and cold start times of Java microservices. While these frameworks are technically interesting, the claim is if you spend time rewriting your Jakarta EE applications to utilise these new frameworks, then you will substantially reduce your cloud operational costs. First, by enabling the adoption of a serverless deployment model and second by reducing your containers' memory usage.
What happens when an application designed for a small user base needs to be scaled up and moved to the cloud? It needs to live in a distributed environment: responding to an appropriate number of concurrent user requests per second and ensuring users find the application reliable. Though Jakarta EE and Eclipse MicroProfile can help with reliable clustering, there is no standard API in Jakarta EE that defines how clustering should work currently. This might change in the future, but in the meantime, this gap must be filled by DevOps engineers. In this blog, we will cover 10 technical strategies to deal with clustering challenges when developing Jakarta EE and MicroProfile for cloud environments.
Benefits of Using Payara Micro in the Cloud 17 Sep 2020
Microservices architecture allows developers to apply best practices for larger systems learned over time with containerized Jakarta EE (Java EE) application deployments in any environment: on premise, in the cloud, or hybrid. Using Payara Micro in the cloud offers benefits ranging from reduced expenses, seamless integration with cloud platforms and tools for management and automation, to automatic and elastic clustering.
All companies are software companies, and businesses will always experience the challenge of keeping integrations between users and applications scalable, productive, fast, and of high quality. To combat this, cloud, microservices, and other modern solutions come up more and more in architectural decisions.Here is the question: Is Java prepared to deal with these diverse concepts in a corporate environment?Yes, and to demonstrate how Jakarta EE and Eclipse MicroProfile work very well and in the cloud, the Payara and Platform.sh will work together on this webinar. Watch and make your conclusions.
