We found it easy to seamlessly incorporate Azul’s Zulu Enterprise builds of OpenJDK 7, 8, 11 and beyond with Payara Server and Payara Micro, enabling us to provide Enterprise customers with a secure and stable application platform from the JVM on up.”

Open source, security and the best customer support

The company said that the Payara Platform Enterprise is stable, supported software designed for mission-critical systems in production and containerized Jakarta EE and MicroProfile applications. Azul Zulu Enterprise is a 100 per cent open source, fully standards-compliant Java Development Kit (JDK) and runtime platform with flexible pricing and support plans, no proprietary licenses or field of use restrictions, timely security updates, and the industry’s best support.
