new to Jira, I don't understand some stuff and i need informations


Our entreprise decide to get Jira and im in charge to install it under centos VM under vmware. My boss said i need 2 differents VM for it, one for the software and another one for the service. is it true? why do i need 2 vm and not only one? our vm server got around 100gb  ram left on it with around 48tb SSD with 2 xeon 14c/28t

Also, our goal is to get all our troubleshoot tickets from agents ( around 50-60 troubleshoot tickets per day 365 days / 24/7) at this place and setup projets with a kanban board and inventory management.

i went ahead and test the installation at my home since i didnt know how to install it byd following the tutorial up there.

It went fine except at the part where it asked where you wanna install it and i choose /opt/jira because default location didn't work at all . So it was okay or i should have choose a different location?

Im really new to centos, linux / jira. Someone can explain me why i would need 2 vm and why the default location didn't work when i followed the tutorial. what would be the vm requirement for the space for this.

Do i need something else or only centos /jira tutorial linked there will be fine ?

Thanks all

Jira is a java web application and currently you can host this  on prem in two modes.


You can host this in single vm .Application and DB together.But i suggest using two vm so that you can separate DB and software.



In this mode you can cluster jira so that if one node goes down other will be up.But you have to configure LB and a shared NAS volume for home directory.


/opt is the default location and should work.Can say more only by seeing the error in logs.
