Running Bamboo Data Center on a single node

You can run Bamboo Data Center on a single node, just like a Server installation. This is useful if you don’t need cluster-specific benefits – such as high availability.

Benefits of running a non-clustered Data Center deployment

There are a range of reasons you may choose a single node Data Center. Some of the benefits include:

  • Keeping your existing infrastructure
    Running on a single node means that you can upgrade from Server to Data Center without adding to your infrastructure. In most cases, moving to Data Center will be as simple as updating your license.

  • Accessing Data Center-only features
    Your Data Center license unlocks a suite of additional features to help you easily manage enterprise-grade Bamboo instance – like SAML single sign-on and improved build resiliency 


Bamboo Data Center deployed on a single node looks just as a Server installation, and consists of:

  • Bamboo Data Center server, running on a single node

  • A database that Bamboo read and writes to

  • Agents that execute your builds and deployments


Non-clustered Data Center deployments follow the same minimum requirements as a Server installation. Check our Bamboo Supported platforms for more details.

App compatibility

The process for installing Marketplace apps (also known as add-ons or plugins) in Bamboo Data Center is the same as for Server. You won’t have to stop Bamboo to install or update an app.

The Atlassian Marketplace indicates apps that are compatible with Bamboo Data Center. Learn more about Data Center approved apps
