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.
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:
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?
Thunk you very much.
Your answer helps me a lot!
I think this is very useful answer for someone to start a new business.
Glad it helped.
Should also have said those figures are for Linux. If you prefer Windows it's more expensive:
If that's all the info you need could you mark my answer as correct please?
Hi guys, when you said "On demand", are you refering to JIRA On Demand Instances?
nope - they are talking about the amazon pricing model for the servers which is based on how much money you give them at the start. On-Demand is the lowest up front cost ($0) but ends up costing about 30% more over 1-3 years. 3 years up front is...the cheapest. One thing the post answer seems to have missed is the extra cost for disk space and a database, which is where Amazon seems (imsho) to 'hit' you with the fees, and the area with the least "here's what to do" instructions. Still, if you want a tier 1 cloud provider - you go with Amazon/EC2. -wc
