I am wondering if you know of any medium/large companies using Spring Boot in a production environment?

I work for a large company ($billions in revenue) and we are using spring in some areas of the business, and I am trying to convince people to migrate services over to spring boot. While our IT department is fairly progressive, there are always concerns about bringing in new technologies that have not been proven, especially into production environments. Also do you know if there is commercial support for Spring Boot?

Absolutely! I'm not sure I'm at liberty to say the names of any particular company that is using Spring Boot, but I know for a fact that many large and small organizations across every industry are using it. Companies you most certainly have heard of. Companies whose products and services you buy. I'd even wager that you have used an app online or on your mobile device that is backed by an app written in Spring Boot.

At the end of the day, Spring Boot apps are Spring apps. Spring Boot makes working with Spring easier, but it's still Spring providing the components that makes the app work. Spring is widely accepted as a production-ready framework, so there's no reason why Spring Boot, by extension, wouldn't be ready for production either.

Thanks Craig. Your response was just as I suspected. Spring boot is just a bunch of existing spring APIs that makes development and deployment easier. I've been toying with Spring Boot for a while and hope to have a service in production sometime this year if all goes well.

Forgot to response if there is commercial support for spring boot?

We are a Bank in US and mostly we are a Spring and Java shop. We use Spring Boot apps in docker-ized containers for Microservices that we are currently creating. It provides nice and simple way to do so. I have never using Spring Boot myself but it future is promising. If your company relies a lot on Spring, Spring Boot is clearly very futuristic and should be adopted.

Admittedly, I'm not as well-versed on commercial support for Spring Boot as I should be, but I can say that Pivotal (my employer and the company behind Spring) offers the same level of commercial support for Spring Boot as they do for Spring itself. Given that we all believe Spring Boot to be *the* way to develop Spring apps, we view them as all but synonyms for each other.

Perhaps the page at https://spring.io/services sums it up better than I can.
