Atlassian Data Center:
By Trefor James, Head of Managed Services, Adaptavist
You may have been hearing lots of talk recently around Atlassian's Data Center line of applications. And it's certainly warranted — Data Center tools offer greater resilience, better performance, and many more deployment options than both Server and Cloud.
These benefits are especially valuable to larger, more complex enterprises seeking a balance between platform uptime and stability and the need to innovate at scale.
But Atlassian Data Center also comes at a cost, so asking the right questions when deciding whether you should make the move is crucial.
So, when is it the right time to take the plunge and dive into Atlassian's brave new Data Center world? To help you evaluate when that time may be, here are some things you may want to consider.
Does downtime matter?
Is your Atlassian toolset so important to your business that experiencing downtime during the working day would cost you serious money? Do you need your Atlassian estate to work 24x7, 365 days of the year? If your answer to either of those questions is 'yes', then Atlassian Data Center could well be right for you.
But while this toolset is designed to be highly available around the clock, you also need to know how to get the best out of it. After all, there’s no good in using software that's capable of n+1 resilience if your underlying infrastructure doesn't support it.
Luckily, we can show you a way to achieve this.
Here at Adaptavist, we partner with Amazon Web Services for our Atlassian Data Center deployments. We do this because AWS allows us to split application nodes across multiple availability zones, delivering maximum resilience to our customers.
Couple this with Amazon's distributed database and file storage services and you have a compelling proposition that should satisfy even the most stringent of service level agreements.
In many cases, upgrades can be performed while your application is live and available to users, further cutting down the possibility of downtime (and disgruntled users!)
Performance? The sky's the limit!
Atlassian Data Center is designed to be highly scalable. This means that as your organisation grows, your Atlassian applications need not be a bottleneck — you can easily increase the performance of an Atlassian Data Center installation by adding more nodes to your cluster.
What’s more, if your remote development teams are struggling with latency whilst checking out repositories from Bitbucket, you can help ease their pain by adding a Smart Mirror near to where they are based. This enables teams to check out code quickly and easily regardless of where your core architecture is located — yet more good news for global enterprise teams.
You can also deploy nodes dedicated to specific functions within Atlassian's Data Center architecture. Do you use Jira to run system intensive EazyBi reports? You can dedicate a node specifically for those, preventing your team's day-to-day operations from slowing down whilst reports are being generated.
Atlassian Data Center also enables you to deploy nodes dedicated to the dreaded task of re-indexing. You can even optimise them to perform your indexing much more quickly than usual, ensuring that your Lucene databases are always in tip-top condition without draining system resources.
We love this functionality at Adaptavist. When combined with proactive monitoring, it allows us to quickly identify performance choke points and trend server resource usage over time.
This means that our account management team can talk to customers in advance of any potential issues, giving them all of the information they need to predict when new nodes might need to be added, or where nodes dedicated to particular functions might make their user experience better.
Is it time to switch to Atlassian Data Center?
At the point that Atlassian applications become indispensable tools in an enterprise organisation — critical to the entire software delivery process and much more beyond — it’s time to consider Data Center.
It’s never too soon to leverage the best-of-breed scaling and resilience of Atlassian Data Center by adding more nodes, giving your organisation the assurance it needs.
What’s more, we’ve been supporting customers with Atlassian Data Center since the very beginning, so there’s no-one better placed to help you make the move and migrate to Atlassian Data Center.
