JIRA Sizing

Virtualizing JIRA (JIRA on VMware) - Atlassian Documentation

The following table lists sizing recommendations for JIRA instances based on your average use cases and hardware demands. The specific recommendations for your company depend on the specific growth type, intensity and use cases. We recommend that you collaborate with one of our Experts to receive a specific recommendation. If you're interested for a referral for a partner/expert, please contact us.

In addition, if you find that you are running in the upper limits of the enterprise scale recommendations, please check out JIRA Data Center. It's specifically designed to help large organizations expand their JIRA solution as their performance and sizing demands increase.

System Requirements
Description For this low level server, consider a dual core type CPU and fast, physical hard disks. For a medium level machine, consider using a medium server CPU (e.g. quad core) and high speed hard disks (e.g. 7200RPM+) for the home directory and backups. For a high-level system, we recommend using high processing power (e.g. dual quad core or higher) and ensuring high I/O performance, e.g. through the use of 10, 000+ RPM or Solid State Disks. This should be a top of the line server with enterprise grade processing power (e.g. 6 quad cores or more) and the highest possible I/O performance (e.g. Raid 10, Solid State Disks).
