Need Stable Payara 5? Payara 5 Community is No Longer The Answer!

Do any of these situations sound familiar to you and your business? 

Need stable Payara 5. I am using latest community version.

I am using Payara 5 Community Edition and I plan to upgrade to Payara 5 Enterprise Edition.
What would be the costs?

We are using Payara Version 5.2022.5 and for some of our customers we want to move to Payara Enterprise to be up-to-date with current security patches.

We are currently using the Community edition of Payara and would like to stay with Payara 5. How much do the enterprise licenses cost to continue to do this?

I currently use Payara 5 Community and have done for many years. Payara 6 Community uses Java 11 but my product doesn't currently work with Java 11 so I would like to understand the cost of Payara 5 Enterprise. 

Our inbox is full of messages like these! Sounds familiar? It might be time to move to Payara 5 Enterprise.

Real-World Use Case: Robust and Flexible Batch Processing with Payara Platform

One of the Payara Platform features people like most is flexibility for how it can run applications and services and connect them to each other. You can run applications on Payara Server, Payara Micro, and cluster them all together in the same Domain Data Grid, while using the same technology for building the applications and the samefeatures in both Payara Platform runtimes. A lot of our customers take advantage of this flexibility and some even take to the extreme, as described below.

Are GlassFish and Payara Server the Same?

When commercial support for GlassFish ended in 2014, Payara Server was created from the open source code as a fully supported drop-in replacement for GlassFish.  

Payara Services was born in 2016 to offer support solutions for Payara Server. By 2017, Payara Services had joined The Eclipse Foundation and the Payara Platform expanded to include Payara Micro and comprehensive commercial support options for development projects, in-production support, and consultancy solutions.  New product features and the development of the Payara Platform evolves and is improved upon with each monthly release, and while the application server was originally derived from GlassFish and shares many similarities - the two products are not the same.
