Established as its own credit card brand in 2005, Rakuten Card Co., Ltd. is a Japanese credit card company formerly known as Rakuten Credit, Inc. It is the No 1 Credit card issuer in Japan and the No 1 credit card company in customer satisfaction.

Rakuten Card encountered many bugs and errors with their previous application server that caused reliability and stability issues. They were unable to solve these issues with their current support provider. After migrating to Payara Server they found the solution more regularly updated and much more reliable, achieving 99.9 % availability. The Payara Support Services were prompt and resolved queries effectively. Find out more in the Rakuten & Payara Case Study.
