Will be looking for a JIRA server and wanted to find out if is this all self contained. Is it best to create a separate DB server with a frontend? Want recommendations for initial setup. What type database does this use? We currently use redmine.
Wondering what is the path for the application and DB for JIRA server. Was going to setup a VM with 4G mem, 16G storage for OS and 100G storage parav for aplication.
A 4Gb server is more than adequate to run a new Jira for a few people, even if you put the database server on it as well. I'd give the Jira service 1Gb memory, most database servers won't need a huge amount, and remember you need to give the operating system some space in memory too.
I would strongly recommend using a supported database. Jira ships with an internal one, which is ok for a bit of trial or testing, but can fail catastrophically without warning.
The "right" database of the four supported ones is usually easy to decide. Pick the one you have the most experience with. If you have absolutely no preference, then go with PostGreSQL, as it's the one Atlassian uses for Cloud and development. MySQL is the second choice, Oracle third, and MS-SQL a distant fourth. But that's 5% of the decision - 95% of it is "which one do you want to support"
