Tutorials and documents for deploying JIRA on AWS are talking about DataCenter version of JIRA (https://s3.amazonaws.com/quickstart-reference/atlassian/jira/latest/doc/jira-software-data-center-on-the-aws-cloud.pdf).
We want to deploy DataCenter at some point on AWS, but for the time being we first want to make POC and test it with JIRA Server before migrating to DataCenter.
My question is - is possible to deploy / host JIRA Server on AWS, are installation and procedures described in the above document applicable to JIRA Server, if yes are there any differences in the sense of installation, deployment and behaviour and can we later easily migrate to DataCenter?
Yes, you can install JIRA Server on AWS. And later migrate to Datacenter.
The instructions will be similar but you don't need a load balancer and multiple nodes.Check out https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/installing-jira-applications-802592161.html
It's not an officially supported platform in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AdminJIRAServer072/Supported+platforms but plenty of people are using it, and if Data Center works there, JIRA Server products should work as well
