Official Microsoft Azure Sample for Payara Micro

Payara Server has a strong relationship withMicrosoft Azureand theJava at Microsoft team - and now, there's an official best practice Azure Sample for running Payara MicroonAzure Kubernetes Service(AKS)! 

This is a reaction to more and more Azure customers wanting to run Payara on Azure, with many moving from GlassFishto Payara Micro on AKS. It also precedes the next step for Azure and Payara:  releasingPayara Cloud as a PaaS running on Azure.

How to Search Log Entries in Payara Cloud

Payara Cloud (launching soon!) delivers an easier way to run your Jakarta EE applications on the cloud. You can upload any web application that follows the Jakarta Web profile specification and click deploy - Payara Cloud will configure and run it in a containerized Payara Micro instance.

Unlike building an application server deployment on a Cloud Infrastructure as a Service or on raw Kubernetes, Payara Cloud takes on a Platform as a Service (PaaS) role and handles provisioning of the infrastructure, installation, configuration, deployment, and scaling your application to eliminate costs and reduce the risks of managing Jakarta EE application servers on Cloud.

You can search the log entries easily within Payara Cloud if you suspect errors or expect a message within the log file.

Payara Cloud (launching soon!) is the next generation of cloud-native application runtime, offering an easier way to run your Jakarta EE applications on the cloud. It will take any web application that follows the Jakarta Web profile specification and run it in a containerized Payara Micro instance - and all you need to do is upload your WAR file and click deploy.

Adam Bien: Overview of Next Generation Cloud Java Runtimes (Video)

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.

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?

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.
