Is 2 GB Ram enough for JIRA,Confluence,BitBucket & Bamboo?

Is 2 GB Ram enough for JIRA,Confluence,BitBucket & Bamboo?


I tried to install those 4 apps in my virtual machine with 2GB of data.

However I can't manage to get all the 4 apps running together.

Only 3 apps can run together but perform very slow.


Is there anyway to reduce the memory consumption for each app so it can run concurrently in 2GB ram?

IMO 2gb is not enough to run any of these standalone with decent performance, let alone all on one server.

Completely agree.  The absolute minimum I'd give each application is 512Mb, and Confluence now counts twice if you enable collaborative editing.  You absolutely must give the operating system space to work as well, and 512Mb is pretty much the bottom end of the scale for a couple of them.

I wouldn't try to run that combination on a machine with less than 12Gb.

Yes you can set the memory for each app by setting the maximum memory in of tomcat 


So you can have each one set to that.

By default JIRA uses 768m and Confluence needs 1G for the core functionality and another 1G for collaborative editing. There needs to be some memory left for the operating system, as well, as Nic points out.

I found some documents that should help you provision the server:

Server Hardware Requirements Guide
