Atlassian – Switching to Data Center


What would you gain moving to Data Center architecture?

Data Center’s clustered deployment means you can add additional nodes to your instance to scale the application horizontally. So, each of your application nodes runs an active instance of your Data Center applications independently of each other. If a node goes down, your team can still use their applications because traffic is directed to another node in the cluster, which makes Data Center applications built for high availability. And with traffic being redistributed to other nodes in your cluster, you don’t have to worry about unexpected downtime.

Plan your Migration

Data Center architecture needs a detailed project planing, so you could aim, for First Time Right (FTR) approach. For that you will need prepare and plan your work tasks, identify the right network configurations (+ Security aspects), build up the environment using the right configuration and settings, conduct focused tests (based on ready made plans).  When your tests are over, you can start your migration plan followed by the Go-Live phase. plan your downtime, new features training and set the cut-over date.

After the migration, allow yourself few days for urgent issues solving, as they might appear while you are already in live mode in the new Data Center environment.
