Server characteristics in vCloud environment

Hello to all,

as I am totally new in the use of products and I wanted to prepare an environment for the use of Jira, BitBucket and Confluence with Postgresql database, I wanted to have your opinion.
For now I can only use a windows 2016 server in a vCloud environment.
I understand for now that the various applications can use the same database obviously with a scheme for each.
Is it possible to install everything only on a database server included?
If yes, how many resources do you recommend to give to the machine?

Thank you all.

Hi Fabio,

welcome to Atlassian Community!

Using a database for all of the three applications is possible when referring to using the same host.

Access for all application to one database is quite unusual and I would not recommend to do so. You would get plenty of tables within one database and no easy overview which table belongs to which application.

If you create three separate databases on the host, for each application one it is absolutely doable and mostly best pratice.

As for sizing I'd recommend to take a look at the specific sizing guides whereas the database in many cases I have seen (at least for Jira) is not the bottleneck - Jira uses (like most Atlassian products) a search index - Lucene.
