Hi, I'm mike_neck.

I'm thinking about installing and running JIRA and Confluence in Amazon EC2.

But I have one question about cost.

Could anyone share cost example for running JIRA and Confluence on Amazon EC2.

I'm thinking to run in the condition as bellow.

  • The number of user will be up to 10.
  • Access JIRA and Confluence about 16 hours a day.

      Hi Mike,

      I cannot speak from personal experience, but looking at server specs I would suggest that you would be looking at either 2 x Small instances or 1 x Medium instance - http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/instance-types/ - as running both Confluence and JIRA on a single Small instance is likely to mean that they will both run very slowly.

      Using the calculator at http://calculator.s3.amazonaws.com/calc5.html the prices for 2 x Small or 1 x Medium come out the same so you would be looking at:

      On Demand Instances:

      • Approx $78 per month
      • Total $936 for 12 months

      Reserved Instances:

      • $320 up front cost for 1 year term
      • Approx $24 per month
      • Total $608 for 12 months

      So Reserved Instances (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/reserved-instances/) would be a lot cheaper than On Demand Instances.

      On top of that you just need the $20 ($10 each) for 10 user licenses for Confluence and JIRA.

      Hope that helps?

        Glad it helped.

        Should also have said those figures are for Linux. If you prefer Windows it's more expensive:

        On Demand

        • Approx $112 per month
        • Total $1344 for 12 months

        Reserved Instances:

        • $320 up front cost for 1 year term
        • Approx $43 per month
        • Total $836 for 12 months

        If that's all the info you need could you mark my answer as correct please?

        Thanks,

        Andrew.
