JBoss EAP on App Service Free and Memory-Optimized Plans
Published May 21 2024 09:00 AM 1,091 Views

We are very happy to announce that JBoss EAP is now generally available on the Azure App Service Free Plan as well as the new memory optimized P0v3, P1mv3, P2mv3, P3mv3, P4mv3, and P5mv3 paid plans. JBoss EAP on App Service is jointly developed and supported by Microsoft and Red Hat. These two key new enhancements will make App Service a more compelling and competitive choice for JBoss EAP customers that prefer a fully managed service experience on Azure. Evaluate JBoss EAP on App Service and reach out to collaborate on your migration.


JBoss EAP on App Service Free Plan

The App Service Free (F1) Plan is a long-established ability that is key to enabling evaluation and experimentation before making a purchasing commitment. Tomcat and Java SE, for example, have been available on the App Service Free Plan. We are now also enabling JBoss EAP on the Free Plan. After initial evaluation, JBoss EAP customers can upgrade to a paid plan to receive full joint commercial support from Microsoft and Red Hat. The Free Plan is currently limited to 10 applications, 60 CPU minutes/day, 1 GB of RAM and 1 GB of storage.




JBoss EAP on New App Service Memory-Optimized Paid Plans

JBoss EAP on App Service had previously been available on the Premium V3 and Isolated V2 plans. These plans are suitable for the most demanding enterprise Java workloads. In addition to these two high-capacity plans, we have now enabled JBoss EAP on the new memory-optimized P0v3, P1mv3, P2mv3, P3mv3, P4mv3, and P5mv3 plans. This enhancement will enable customers to further right-size their deployments and get the maximum value from App Service.




More to Come

In addition to these two important and timely enhancements, we are working hard to deliver a number of important changes to JBoss EAP on App Service in subsequent months.


  • Making JBoss EAP 8 available on App Service in addition to JBoss EAP 7.4. JBoss EAP 8 supports the newer Jakarta EE 10 and Java SE 17 technologies.
  • Enabling customers to apply their existing JBoss EAP subscriptions purchased from Red Hat to App Service. This will be an alternative to the current model where the JBoss EAP subscription fee is built into App Service pricing.
  • Reducing the built-in JBoss EAP subscription fee part of App Service pricing to be more in line with JBoss EAP market pricing on the cloud (such as on Azure VMs).


Get Started with JBoss EAP on App Service

Take advantage of the Free Plan and deploy your first Java application to JBoss EAP on App Service today. You can use the memory-optimized plans to right-size your cloud environments for development, testing, and production.
