Recommended size of the JIRA Data Center instance:

Active Users EC2 instance type Recommended number of nodes

0 – 250

c3.xlarge 1-2*
250 – 500 c3.xlarge 1-2*
500 – 1000 c3.2xlarge 2
1000 – massive scale c3.4xlarge+ 3+

* For high-availability, we recommend deploying 2 or more cluster nodes as a minimum.
