Inside Atlassian's journey to Data Center on AWS

Moving to AWS with Atlassian Data Center products? Learn from Atlassian's team of internal experts about how they tackled the migration and the benefits they've been able to unlock.

To help Atlassian teams around the world work better together, Atlassian's Workplace Technology team has migrated 8 Jira instances, 2 Confluence instances, and 1 Crowd instance from traditional data centers into AWS Cloudformation.

They’ve seen stability and reliability improve, and are finding it much easier to administer than their old deployments.

In this webinar, our Atlassian team will show you how they got there, and help you chart your own path to AWS. Join us for a discussion around:

  • Why we chose AWS and Cloudformation
  • What Atlassian's tech stacks look like
  • The benefits we unlocked, and challenges that we faced
  • What we built to overcome those challenges


We'll also have plenty of time for questions, so bring your challenges and prepare to share them with our team!
