Overall Satisfaction with GraalVM

We're using GraalVM for Minecraft servers. We use it on every server we have. Since we started using GraalVM we recognized better performance incorporation with a modified Minecraft server jar. Also we're having a smaller RAM and CPU usage. Most of us are also using it on our private windows machines, and java processes are faster there too.
  • Better performance
  • Smaller CPU and RAM usage
  • Offering it for free
  • At the moment we're happy with the features it has.
  • We're not released yet so I can's say much about this yet.
Considered OpenJDK and OracleJDK. Our main point is still that we need a VM which starts the servers very quickly and GraalVM tops them all.

Do you think GraalVM delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with GraalVM's feature set?


Did GraalVM live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of GraalVM go as expected?


Would you buy GraalVM again?


As I mentioned before, if you're searching a VM which can speed up your processes, GraalVM is the right thing for you. Also good if you're looking to lower your CPU and RAM usage.
