How Atlassian Scales Bitbucket Data Center on AWS

Join a couple DevOps gurus for a deep dive into how Atlassian scales our internal Bitbucket Data Center instance using AWS.

Atlassian has 1,000s developers using Bitbucket everyday. Each user is committing code, running CI builds, reviewing and creating pull requests on a daily basis. This poses certain challenges for the teams running and maintaining infrastructure – 1,000 users equates to storing terabytes worth of information and under an enormous load of 100,000s of builds all on one instance. 

Join a couple DevOps gurus for a deep dive into how Atlassian scales our internal Bitbucket Data Center instance using AWS. The deep dive will cover configuration tips and tricks along with recommendations on how to keep developers happy with speedy clone times and better availability. You'll leave with a firm understanding around:  

  • How to use AWS auto-scaling with Bitbucket Data Center for better performance.
  • How Smart Mirrors provide lightning fast Git access for teams all over the globe.
  • How to provide continuous availability using an HA cluster in multiple AWS zones.
  • How to start using Git large file support (Git LFS) to dramatically reduce clone and build times.
