Atlassian applications are mission-critical in a lot of organizations, and managing a clustered setup of Data Center applications is challenging. Following a DevOps and Cloud native approach, we created a unique solution to run Atlassian installations within Kubernetes. It’s called Atlassian Software in Kubernetes (ASK) and it’s open-source.
Join this webinar with the creators of ASK, Tim, and Henrik, to learn about this easy-to-manage system where everything is defined as code.
We will show you how to spin up an Atlassian application, in this case, Jira Software, in Data Center mode on a Kubernetes cluster to allow for easier scaling, resiliency, and automatic service discovery.
In addition, we will use Rook-Ceph for the stateful applications persistent storage to demonstrate how to deploy and use a highly available shared file system with support for ReadWriteMany needed by the active/active clustered Jira nodes.
Key learning points
Deploying, scaling, and updating the Jira Data Center on a Kubernetes cluster
Considerations when migrating to a container orchestrator
Highly available resilient shared file system with support for dynamic storage provisioning
