Hi, I know that a lot of companies are now running their Jira instances within containers, and I have recently noticed that Atlassian offer Docker images for both Jira & Confluence.
I'm curious as to what would lead you down this path? As far as my understanding of containers goes, they are extremely useful for application development, allowing a consistent image to be passed from Dev to QA to Production etc. Also startup/shutdown times are greatly improved, as is the ability to quickly create new instances.
However, do any of these benefits of using containers really lend themselves to a Jira instance? Most setups will consist of a heavily used production instance, and perhaps a dev/test instance for validating changes or add-ons. I can't see a scenario where I'd want to quickly create a new instance of Jira. Also the startup/shutdown benefits are not that important as it happens so rarely.
Appreciate your thoughts/advice on this...
