With the confidence of a long-term support commitment, we use Amazon Corretto to create state-of-the-art software products. Long-term support, free use, and production-ready distribution of Open Java Development Kit, also, a web app's performance optimization stands out. Amazon Corretto provides patches, security updates, and bug fixes for a set period.

Before Corretto we used to use Java JDK but it was not reliable and supported that much. So we switched to Amazon Corretto which now solves all of our issues such as performance, and cross-platform support, and allow us to do local testing in Hybrid platforms, and it also offers a production-ready SDK which helped our team in cutting our production time which pushed our team's productivity.
  • Offers a production-ready SDK with no costing
  • It allow us to do local testing in Hybrid platforms
  • Amazon Corretto offers a fluid experience on every platform, so it has really been amazing in less wasting of time.
  • Amazon Corretto really has short documentation which has been the issue for us in the past resulting in the development issues
  • This service is relatively unknown and less popular which results in the smaller community which means in case you get stuck somewhere it may be difficult for you to the find the resources.
  • No other issues noted as of now by us
Amazon Corretto is best suited if you want to write Java apps in the AWS environment with the functionality of cross-platform support with minimal to no cost and that too with long-term support and that too with a production-ready OpenJDK. If your requirement is any of these points then Amazon Corretto is probably the best option available for you in the market.
  • Cross Platform support
  • Production ready SDK
  • Long term Support
  • No-Costing
  • Pushed our teams overall productivity with production ready SDK
  • It helped us to have cross platform support
  • Overall Cost Cutting
One of the main benefits which Amazon Corretto provides is the production-ready SDK with the least to no cost at all and there also you have been provided with cross-platform support which for sure acts as the deal breaker over all the other platforms available in the market. These are the points that highlight Amazon Corretto more than other available platforms.

We use Amazon Corretto to develop cutting-edge software products in the healthcare domain. Amazon Corretto supports the latest version of Java released by Oracle. It helps us release products using Java's latest version to compete in the software domain and improve the performance of our existing applications. All the applications are deployed on the AWS Cloud.
  • Security features of the latest Java Version 17.
  • Compatibility with other AWS cloud resources.
  • Very low bugs in production.
  • There is a delay in the delivery of patches.
Amazon Corretto is a specialized implementation of OpenJDK, which is well suited for all the Java applications being deployed on the AWS stack. It has lots of security features and is very compatible with other services available on AWS. If we are using any other cloud provider, then Amazon Corretto is not suited.
  • Security.
  • Compatibility.
  • Fixes & Patches getting delayed.
