How much does it cost to run JIRA and Confluence in Amazon EC2.

mike_neck asked this question · 1 karma ·

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?

Andrew.

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.
