GraalVM is a universal virtual machine for running applications written in JavaScript, Python, Ruby, R, JVM-based languages like Java, Scala, Groovy, Kotlin, Clojure, and LLVM-based languages such as C and C++. GraalVM removes the isolation between programming languages and enables interoperability in a shared runtime. It can run either standalone or in the context of OpenJDK, Node.js or Oracle Database.

GraalVM
Chose GraalVM
We used Azure App Service along with stream analytics both have their own pros and cons. GraalVM is better for Java native codes while Azure is for C# and .NET. Both are good, in a sense, but for our native apps GraalVM is better. We would like to see how it does in the long run.
Chose GraalVM
GraalVM is much better in terms of performance and speed. It also provides the multi-language support feature.

You may easily deploy your apps to Azure App Service if they were written in Visual Studio IDE (typically.NET applications). With a few clicks of the mouse, you may already deploy your application to a remote server using the Visual Studio IDE. As a result of the portal's bulk and complexity, I propose Heroku for less-experienced developers.

Oracle
Its well fit for the environment where applications are written in programming languages supported by GraalVM. It's [a] very powerful and reliable, high-performer Java Virtual Machine that provides the Java Development kit i.e JDK that has the ability to compile the Java apps ahead of time. Maintenance of this tool is simple and it [increases] the efficiency of the product since it requires few resources.

  • It should be possible to use GraalVM EE to distribute native images of JavaFX applications for mobile platforms, especially for Apple platforms.
  • Native Images are a game changer. However, compiling complex applications can be a pain. Better support for an improved transition process are a must.

We had an issue where we deployed too large of a resource and didn't notice until the bill came through. They were very understanding and saw we weren't utilizing the resources so they issued a generous refund in about 4 hours. Very fast, friendly, and understanding support reps from my experience.

Like all Oracle tools, you can find a lot of documentation and also write down your questions in a forum. Sadly I don't see too many users so far but I hope it'll keep increasing and in a short period we will have more information and ofc issues fixed. So far, everything I needed I could find easily.

Azure has many data center, their services are more reliable. Azure has way more features than both Linode and DigitalOcean. If someone wants a complete reliable service, he/she must go to Azure instead of Linode and DigitalOcean because even though azure charges more, it is worth the money you pay there.

GraalVM is at the top when it comes to executing Java applications in terms of speed. With its amazing fast ahead of its time compiler it helps in reducing the startup time of the applications. Also, the overall performance of the product is increased and reduces the latency as well. It supports multiple languages such as Groovy, Ruby, Javascript, R, Python, Scala, Java, Clojure, and many more.

  • Financial: Increased Java container count on the same hardware.
  • Performance: Decreased cold start time for container startup.
  • Training: Adopting GraalVM has a learning curve. This requires investment in time and resources. The benefits come through re-evaluating our current deployments for optimization.
