Moving to clustered Data Center
Clustered Data Center installations require additional infrastructure (such as a load balancer), and a more complex deployment topology, so there will be more steps involved in the migration process.
It's important to build and follow a plan to successfully make the switch to a clustered deployment model. Here are some guides to get you started:
- The Atlassian Data Center migration plan gives some guidance on overall process, organizational preparedness, estimated time frames, and app compatibility.
- The Atlassian Data Center migration checklist also provides useful tests and checks to perform throughout the moving process.
