We're proud to announce that our 2019 Community Survey results are now available! We conducted a survey between September and November 2019 to determine how organizations are using the Payara Platform and what ecosystem components are most commonly used with the platform. Thank you for contributing and helping us gain insight into which features and enhancements the community would most like to see in future releases of the Payara Platform.
The Jakarta EE 8 Full Platform, Web Profile specifications and related TCKs have been officially released today (September 10th, 2019). This release completes the transition of Java EE to an open and vendor-neutral process and provides a foundation for migrating mission-critical Java EE applications to a standard enterprise Java stack for a cloud native world.
If your business processes branded credit card data (such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover), you must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The requirements were developed and are maintained by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards to reduce credit card fraud and implement increased controls around cardholder information. For companies using the Payara Platform, having a Payara Enterprise support subscription helps you maintain compliance.
The term “Kubernetes” comes from the Greek “kubernan,” which means to steer or guide. You can think of Kubernetes like a pilot for apps that are stored and run together in containers and other forms of workload distribution software. The Greek “kubernan” was transformed over the years to relate to the term “Govern”, which is another helpful comparison when trying to understand the full capacity of Kubernetes.
When a leading telecoms company in Switzerland, Swisscom, transitioned to Payara Server from GlassFish for their mission critical applications, they found the migration easy and without problems. In fact, having Payara Enterprise Support meant Swisscom had access to a customer-only build which shortened the time to getting a fix to test by two months and 24x7 access to Payara engineers.
Have you ever been in a situation where something not-so-good happened, and you looked back and said “man, I wish I had….” Most of us can think of a time in our lives when we had the opportunity to prevent an undesirable outcome by acting – and didn’t. For example, have you ever planned a trip and declined the purchase of travel insurance, only to find out you have to cancel the trip? You wished you had paid the extra expense to get the insurance, right? Many businesses find themselves in a similar situation when they take a reactive approach to their IT support needs, waiting until a problem presents itself before finding the resources to solve it. Unfortunately, this reactive response to support ends up costing you more in downtime, resources, efficiency and money in the long run.
