atlassian-stack-on-aws

On June 13th, 2017, Atlassian introduced Atlassian Stack, its first multi-product offering for enterprise organizations.

Being a leader in team collaboration and productivity software, the new offering helps to modernize the way enterprise organizations communicate across teams. Within organizations of enterprise mass, it can be easy for teams to be siloed; this new product will help to break those communication barriers down by emphasizing collaboration and process through tools like JIRA, Confluence, HipChat, Bitbucket and more.  More specifically, the Atlassian Stack includes:

  • Atlassian Server (JIRA Core, HipChat, Bamboo, FishEye, Crucible, Crowd)
  • Atlassian Data Center (JIRA Software, Bitbucket, JIRA Service Desk, Confluence)
  • Add-Ons (Portfolio for JIRA, Capture for JIRA, Questions for Confluence, Team Calendars for Confluence)
  • Premier Support

Designed for enterprises with large user bases (1,000+), the Atlassian Stack makes it easier for enterprises to buy, license, and use Atlassian products across the organization, while achieving security and compliance. The solution also aims to make the procurement process for internal stakeholders simpler by listing all Atlassian Stack products as a single line item, based on user tier, starting at $186,875. This means that buying the Atlassian Stack can save organizations up to 50% compared to purchasing each product a la carte at the same user tier.

Scale Atlassian Stack on AWS

Elasity helps enterprise organizations scale their Atlassian applications and instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Elasity effectively runs your Atlassian Server, Data Center, and Atlassian Stack on a managed AWS platform, delivered as a service. This enables the enterprise to take advantage of high performance, high availability, disaster recovery, and scalability when hosting on AWS.

High Availability and Disaster Recovery

Organizations that use JIRA, JIRA Service Desk, Bitbucket, and Confluence in their Atlassian Stack can leverage Elasity for high availability and disaster recovery, which is essential to large businesses.

Large organizations can’t afford to experience downtime, as it effects teams at all levels, including customers. It’s estimated that a 30 minute outage could cost a larger organization $24,000; if we assume 5 outages a year, that could cost over $100,000. Let that sink in for a moment.

By leveraging AWS for Atlassian Data Center Applications, organizations can replicate their data using one of AWS’ 15+ Regions and Availability Zones, ensuring cross-region disaster recovery. Here’s a diagram from our latest event, Atlassian Enterprise Day, hosted at AWS in New York City to illustrate how this works.
