Data Center deployment options

You can deploy Jira Data Center in two ways:

Non-clustered (single node)

Run Jira Data Center on a single node, just like a Server installation. This option doesn’t require any changes to your infrastructure, but it does allow you to take advantage of Data Center-only features. Quick and easy. Learn more


Run Jira Data Center in a cluster with multiple nodes, and a load balancer to distribute traffic. Clustering is designed for large, or mission-critical, Jira instances, allowing you to provide high availability, and maintain performance as you scale. Learn more
