Can I Deploy Jira Data Center on Google Cloud Platform? Edited

Hi my company is using GCP to host our apps, so I wonder if I can deploy Jira Data Center in GCP. Atlassian documentation says besides on prem the only supported IaaS platforms are AWS and Azure. We don't want to go in the route of on prem and want to do this on GCP.

I have deployed Jira in GCP in the past without issues. 

Shouldn't hurt to give it a try from your end

  • Thanks for the answer Hernan! Are you saying you were successful deploying jira Data Center in GCP? I know we can do Jira server in GCP, my question is about Data Center. Please clarify.

I didn't setup data center, but I don't see why you couldn't. I've run Jira with MSSQL on a version that wasn't supposed to be supported, I have setup Jira on docker when it said it wasn't supported, I wouldn't expect any difference here. In the end Jira runs in Linux or Windows, doesn't care what's running behind that.

Technically, yes, but be prepared for the following issues/limitations regarding databases...

In general, CloudSQL is "not as feature rich" (to put it kindly) as RDS.

CloudSQL's PostgreSQL implementation only allows creation of databases collation en_US.UTF8 and charset UTF8 via the GCP Console (or Terraform).  This is not supported by Jira Data Center, so you will have to create the database via the command line with the supported options.

CloudSQL's "MySQL 5.7" implementation doesn't seem to work with Jira's MySQL 5.7 connector at all.  I get warnings about SSL, using an unsupported charset/collation (even though I can plainly demonstrate I'm using the right ones).

I haven't yet tried CloudSQL MySQL 5.6 or MSSQL Server.  Ultimately, none of the GCP CloudSQL database implementations are supported by Atlassian, so you would be better running your database on one or more VMs, using the actual supported software.

I can confirm as long as you create the databases using the console (not the UI), then you won't have any issues. We saw great improvement switching to Cloud PostgreSQL over on-prem MSSQL; this was for JIRA Server.

Our issue we are experiencing right now for moving to DC is disk related. We are trying to find a solution for the DC requirement of a shared home directory with read/write access.

I believe this is now finally available in GCP, but it's a beta feature: [multi-writer zonal persistent SSD disks|].

I have not tried this feature yet, but will be trying as part of our exploration into JIRA DC.
