Payara’s Mission is to grow a sustainable business that imagines and creates innovative, trusted, open-source software and services that are widely used, deliver value and are loved by our users.
When commercial support for GlassFish ended in 2014, Payara Server was created as a fully-supported drop-in replacement. Payara Services was born in 2016 to offer support solutions for the application 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. In 2018, Payara Platform 5 was released and a new EU office was created to further support the rapidly growing company.
