We can install Jira on Linux or Windows for you. On your existing environment or we create a new infrastructure (AWS, others)
Jira installation guide. Jira application has 3 branches
Jira Core. All you need for basic task and project management.
Jira Service Desk (SD). Based on Jira Core. As you can understand from its name Jira SD extends Jira Core with Service Desk functionality (ticket queues, SD workflows, Service desk issue types, automations, SLA, reports, and customer portal).
Jira Software. Based on Jira Core. Implements Agile frameworks for development teams (Agile ticket types, boards, workflows, Agile functionality, reports, forecasting).
Each Jira application can be used as
Atlassian Cloud. Periodical payment for hosting (licenses). Pros: you don’t need to install anything. Cons: you are reliable on Atlassian company in terms of information security (your data is on their cloud), you can’t use many Jira add ons as they are not supported in cloud, you can’t fully integrate it in your ecosystem, you can’t customize Jira look and feel.
Jira server or Jira on-premises. One-time payment for licenses. Pros: full access to the application and data, you can use any Jira add on and develop any custom Jira plugin, Jira can be integrated with any existing system, Jira interface and functionality can be deeply customized. Cons: we need to spend some time on creating a solution architecture, preparing an environment and install Jira server. Usually everything takes from a couple of hours to a couple of days.
Jira data center. A bit more complicated format, ideal for big companies as it guarantees highest level or reliability of Jira (as it executes load balancing and provides multiple application nodes).
Consider Jira setup on Linux
Per our stats 9 out of 10 companies install Jira on a server of Linux OS family hosted:
at Amazon Web Services (AWS)
at Digital Ocean
Typical work scope (steps) to install Jira server
Server configuration: environment update, aptitudes and repositories update, configure swapping, install reverse proxy (Nginx, for example), configure proxy, configure SSL, install database, configure Jira application autorun, service registration, install Java, configure Java environment for the application.
Jira installation and configuration: install Jira, configure DB, healthcheck (check logs, addo-ns, base links configuration), user directories configuration.
For Jira Data Center it will take a bit more efforts and time.
Jira configuration after setup
Jira from a box strongly requires some initial configurations do be done after its installation. Things to consider with high priority:
memory usage by Java
HTTPS and reverse proxy
users authentication and authorization mechanism
proxy and Internet access
integration with existing ecosystem
