LinkedIn runs the world's largest professional community with 500M worldwide members, 10M active jobs, 9M companies and 100k articles published weekly. A stable and scalable Jira deployment was essential in the journey to meeting these milestones. Accommodating 2.5 million hits a day on a Jira instance with 3 million issues demands focus, governance, and innovation.

Expecto Performa! The Magic and Reality of Performance Tuning
In the enterprise there are rarely simple solutions to highly nuanced problems that satisfy all needs. Several customers might each ask "How do I make Jira/Confluence faster?" and each require a different answer. Using this example, this talk will pick apart the inputs, outputs, concerns, and realities of answering a short question with a long answer. We'll then discuss real-world examples from our own internal instances, to give you a taste of the process we've gone through to solve our own performance problems, and to show why there is no simple playbook; "it depends" on a lot! The key takeaways are:
- The importance of having a shared definition of performance
- The importance of having agreed-upon priorities, including what isn't important
- The importance of measuring (allthethings) and understanding them
- The thing you think is the problem might not be the problem, and vice versa.
- The real world and the ideal world tend to look nothing alike!
How Atlassian Manages Risk and Compliance with Jira Software and Confluence
Traditional Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) tools are big, expensive, and challenging to manage and integrate. They typically require an army of people to implement and maintain. At Atlassian, we use the power and flexibility of JIRA Software and Confluence to manage our GRC for a low cost, while seamlessly integrating with our existing processes and teams. Join us if you manage risk and compliance, work in information security, conduct audits, or if you are just tired of chasing audit remediations. We will share best practices that organizations in all industries or geographic locations can leverage to manage their governance, risk & compliance needs.
Merging and Migrating: Data Portability from the Trenches
Atlassian products contain lots of data, and often there isn't just one Jira system in use. Be it moving to or from the Cloud, or between instances - merging and migrating data can be hard. Dan Hardiker from Adaptavist will share the challenges they face and solutions they've found to common data portability issues. Learn some best practices, including their standardised Export-Transform-Load approach, and uncover many hidden gremlins you may trip over along the way. After this sessions you'll be ready to fearlessly move data from one Jira instance to another!
Standardization Nirvana: How a Large International Bank Manages and Supports 25,000+ Users in a Single Instance
Running applications at enterprise scale is hard, and when you add in secured and restricted infrastructure, it becomes even harder. The best way to achieve the success of IT service at enterprise scale is to reach the point of standardization. Learn how a large international bank implemented a standardized process, and went from 25 Jira instances each with custom processes implemented, to now running a single instance of Jira Software Data Center with only 2 processes shared across 25,000 users! We'll share our experiences, challenges, and best practices for managing and supporting tools with more than 25,000 users in single instance of Jira, Bitbucket, Confluence, and Fisheye/Crucible.
Scaling Atlassian Customer Care with AWS and Data Center
We all want our Atlassian deployments to be performant at scale and highly available, not to mention giving our users a stellar experience in collaboration. But what if your usage is scaling in size and complexity too fast for your infrastructure to keep up?
Ian Mouton, owner of the Atlassian customer care systems is here to tell us the story of how his team upgraded to JIRA Data Center and migrated to AWS infrastructure to meet this challenge. Attendees will learn about a great example of the requirements, technical challenges and outcomes of such a deployment.
And to top it off, Bina Khimani, Global Head of Infrastructure Segments and Partner Ecosystem at Amazon Web Services, will discuss best practices for migration to AWS. You will learn key concepts, guiding principles and staged approach to cloud adoption.
Deployment Flexibility: Introducing Support for Microsoft Azure
Heading to Azure? We got you. Atlassian and Microsoft are happy to introduce Jira Software Data Center deployments directly into Microsoft Azure! Learn how you can get setup in Microsoft Azure with a ready to run Jira Software Data Center Cluster, hear deployment examples for organizations who are making the move to Azure and hear about what's next for Atlassian on Azure.
Apps in the Enterprise: Best Practices for Evaluating, Onboarding and Managing Apps for Atlassian Tools
Every Atlassian user's dream is it's Administrator's nightmare. If you are an Admin for an Atlassian suite of products, you will probably know what it means to keep the ecosystem stable and high performing while still taking advantage of the best apps out there and not overcrowding. This talk provides a brief overview on the various challenges of having a large inventory of apps and shares insight on the best guidelines to adopt during evaluation of new apps and onboarding them into production environment.
