Elastic scale

Elastic Scale

Our cloud products are built to quickly respond to increased customer data and user load. This provides consistent and predictable performance that scales with your business and customers' needs.

Localized data,
better performance

Our cloud hosting infrastructure for Jira Software, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence includes AWS regions across the United States, Germany, Ireland, Singapore, and Australia.

Our platform optimizes where customer data is located based on origin of access, ensuring more reliable performance and reduced latency. As an example, if the majority of users access your organization's Jira or Confluence cloud instances from Europe, then their data will be migrated to and stored in Europe.
