We are currently migrating Jira (server license) from on-prem to AWS Cloud (server license) - Any suggestions on how to migrate the application data to AWS Cloud?
Our instance is very large (600 GB) therefore the XML export option is not viable for us.
AWS will still be running a Server version of the software (I don't have a high opinion of Atlassian's choices of names in some areas, as they confuse people)
If you install exactly the same version of Jira Server on AWS as you have on your current servers, and use the same database, you will be able to take a backup of the database (which won't be 600Gb of xml), and restore it on the AWS side, copy the home directory (including attachments) to the application server, probably with some minor changes around connectors, and the same thing will then run up on AWS.
Hi @Keshni ! I'm Emily, a product manager at Atlassian.
We've just built the beta of a solution to help ease migrations from Server/Data-Center-on-prem to Data-Center-on-AWS-Quickstarts.
Would you be interested to join our beta program and try out this solution? If you're interested, or would like to find out more, please email me at email@example.com.
