connect two JIRA instances

Hello.  We currently have  one JIRA instance running.  We are wanting to know if we can set up another instance on a separate server with a separate license yet join it to the current one.  We want to share workflows, projects, etc but have 2 instances running.  is this possible? Any tips or instructions on how to do this.

 

Thanks

You can run what is known as a federated instance, which basically allows some cross-searches between the instances, allows for issues to be moved between projects between the servers. Each server will however run it's own license. I never did it, so not sure if it will only show workflows on the server you are connected to. Don't know for sure, but i am guessing this is as close to what you want, that you can achieve.
