If you want some low cost JDK provider where you need the frequent updates as well, you can go ahead for Azul Zing instead of OpenJDK. But if budget is not a concern, I would recommend going for some well known company such as Oracle. Also if you are using Azul for production, make sure to use it for Dev ENV too so as to reproduce issues.

It's best when you want to use JDK version 11 that currently I'm using and it's one of the best out there in market. Currently we I'm using Red Hat build of OpenJDK for my company project and in which we work on Java 11, so to integrate Java 11 i need to have JDK 11 so I choose to go with the Red Hat build of OpenJDK as it's provide Conveniently integration with the project.

Oracle was costlier whereas OpenJDK had less frequent updates. Azul was average of both of them, so it was choosen.
