What AWS architecture for Jira & Confluence using SSL

M Amine Community Leader Jun 19, 2018


We are planning to deploy Jira, Confluence and Crowd (server, not Data Center) on AWS. 

Jira and Confluence have to use SSL. So we are faced with two options:

  1. Option 1:
    1.  Deploy a reverse proxy (like nginx for eg.) on an EC2 instance on a public subnet 
    2. + Configure nginx to use SSL (according to Atlassian documentation)
    3. + Add a NAT Gateway in order to connect the public subnet to the private subnet
    4. + Use Jira, Crowd & Confluence and Database (RDS) on a private subnet 
  2. Option 2:
    1. Use a NAT GATEWAY on a public subnet 
    2. + Use Jira, Crowd & Confluence on a private subnet and configure Jira, Crowd & Confluence to use SSL

Cann't really say what is the best option. 

Any thoughts? Share your experience :)

kind regards
