Payara Cloud: Logo Creation and Brand Continuity

Payara Services provides stable, supported open source software. Bringing our solutions to a global audience entails a wider skillset in the team than can be confined to Java developers and engineers, however. Our Marketing, Sales and HR departments have vital roles to play, with our Fish Food blogs providing a peek behind the curtain (or under the hood!) of running an award-winning, fast-growing, values-driven tech business. 

In this blog, Marketing team member Denisa Zettlova, one of our Graphic Designers, provides insight into how she created the logo for our new product: next generation application server Payara Cloud.

It’s an example of where those in job roles that are not explicitly Java-related become uniquely specialised – the cross-over between non-tech skills and the programming world! Cloud is a crowded market, so Denisa needed to be able to identify and assess the branding of specific competitor products. This allowed her to design a logo that referenced classic cloud imagery – so people could instantly tell what it was meant to be – whilst also having its own unique “Payaran” identity.

Payara Week 2021: Of-FISH-ally Just as Good Online!

Long-time followers of Team Payara will know that Payara Week is our annual company-wide event. It’s our opportunity for team bonding, to discuss and develop ideas for Payara’s future success, and, most importantly, have lots of fun!

Last year, our fourth Payara Week took place at our Portugal office, located in Funchal on the island of Madeira. The fantastic event energised the team, and as the time for the fifth of these exciting company summits rolled round, we were faced with the question – what would Payara Week look like when pandemic-related restrictions meant it had to be virtual?

The answer? Thanks to the invention, imagination and innovation of our HR and Engagement team – and the fantastic attitude of Payarans all over the globe – Payara Week was just as creative, inspiring and relationship-building than in previous years! Payara Cloud lead developer Patrik Duditš invites you to find out more…

Team Payara Chooses the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as its Charity of the Year

Payara Services are proud to announce that we’ve chosen the Bumblebee Conservation Trust as our Payara Charity of the Year!

About the Bumblebee Conservation Trust

The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns over declining numbers of bumblebees. These insects are not only well-loved but also valued for the way they pollinate crops and wildflowers.

The charity aims to enhance understanding of the work these industrious insects do, why they are declining in numbers and how a diverse range of people can help. They also work to increase the quality and quantity of bumblebee habitats.

Join Payara engineers for an informative and practical webinar on the recent updates and enhancements to the Payara Platform in the latest release (Payara Platform February Release).

Every month, we answer questions on the most recent release and also discuss a key theme –  this month, it’s MicroProfile 4.0, now fully supported in the Payara Platform Community Edition. We have covered what you can expect from the latest specifications in a blog, but please use this opportunity to ask any questions you might have about MicroProfile and its new iteration.

Full support for MicroProfile 4.0 follows us announcing we are part of the MicroProfile Working Group.   The MicroProfile project was born as a community initiative to optimise Enterprise Java with a microservices standard platform, and the Eclipse Foundation‘s MicroProfile Working Group proposes and gain approval for new common APIs and functionality – in turn drawing on the knowledge of a wide variety of different vendors. As one of the contributors, Payara engineers will shape and drive the future of the MicroProfile specifications.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR)

… or Best Laid Plans!

Writing this, I’m sitting in a country faring badly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Lockdowns, curfews, restrictions on personal freedoms, mask wearing and armed police on the streets … not to mention the strain on mental health and, of course, risk from the virus.

However, one thing I am NOT worried about is our business.

Why is that? Simple: we have a well-constructed, flexible, simple, tested Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan.
