We kicked off the year with the Payara Roadmap for 2021. In this January webinar, Steve provided: detail on benefits of the Jakarta EE model; how the Payara Platform is evolving and moving toward Payara 6; updates and progress of the Payara Cloud project, our new PaaS product; and latest news regarding the next major OpenJDK release - JDK 17 Long Term Support (LTS) and what that means for Payara Platform.

In this May update, Steve gives a check-in on how we are progressing along our roadmap, with a retrospective on the year so far and details on what the rest of the year is set to look like. He provides a snapshot of where we are in relation to the plans and projects he mapped out at the beginning of the year.
Steve also discusses the results of the Payara Platform 2021 Survey. If you haven't had a chance to read the full report and summary yet, make sure you do by following this link:https://blog.payara.fish/2021-payara-platform-survey-results
We’re pleased to announce that our 2021 Payara Platform Survey results are now available!
This survey was promoted to our audience between March and April 2021. We shared with Payara Platform Enterprise customers and Community users via social media, emails and blogs. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to contribute!
Payara Cloud Experiment Lab Report
Before the Payara Cloud Closed Beta testing began we tried an experiment to see if Payara Cloud is as easy to use as we say it is by having a member of the marketing team (me!) test the product. I’ve been a copywriter/content writer specializing in technology topics for over 18 years, so while I can’t claim to be a stranger to the tech industry, my knowledge is more focused around the benefits of using certain types of technology rather than the inner details of how it works. The idea of our little "science experiment" was if I could successfully deploy an application without any previous knowledge, then surely more experienced tech teams would find it even easier to use.
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.
If you haven't heard yet, the Payara Team has been hard at work developing Payara Cloud, The Next Generation of Cloud-Native Application Server. Payara Cloud makes it easier to run your applications on the cloud - and eliminates the need to learn how to use Kubernetes. With Payara Cloud, you simply select your war, click deploy, and watch your apps run on the cloud, automagically! (Have you seen the Payara Cloud teaser video yet? Take a look here.)
Running your applications on the cloud takes quite a bit of effort. Even “cloud-native” applications present challenges when packaging them to run on the cloud!
What if you could focus on writing code for your business applications and not worry about making it work on Kubernetes or configuring everything to run them on the cloud? What if configuration and deployment were as simple as selecting your War file and clicking deploy? Imagine how much faster you could write code and deliver applications!
That’s what Payara Cloud will do for you. Payara Cloud is what cloud-native should be.
In this Roadmap Overview Webinar, Payara CEO Steve Millidge discusses the current Roadmap for Payara Platform, a retrospective on the last few months, what can be expected in upcoming releases and the latest news on Jakarta EE 9 and beyond. And even a few words on our not so secret, revolutionary project - Payara Cloud.
