About Bitbucket Data Center

Atlassian Bitbucket is the Git code management solution for enterprise teams. It allows everyone in your organization to easily collaborate on your Git repositories, while providing enterprise-grade support for:

  • user authentication
  • repository security
  • integration with your existing databases and development environments

Bitbucket Server is built with enterprise scaling and infrastructure flexibility in mind, giving administrators control over how Bitbucket fits into their environment: 

  • For most organizations, a single instance of Bitbucket Server provides good performance. See Using Bitbucket in the enterprise for guidance on best practice in setting up Bitbucket Server in a production environment.
  • For larger enterprises that require HA and greater performance at scale, Bitbucket Data Center resources uses a cluster of Bitbucket Server nodes and is the deployment option of choice.

Your single instance of Bitbucket Server can be easily upgraded to Bitbucket Data Center when the time comes.
