Atlassian Multi-App Install: How best to deploy?

We are about to install Jira, Confluence, Stash, Bamboo, Crucible, and Fisheye locally.

Our team presently consists of about 15 individuals; however, we might deploy JIRA more broadly as a helpdesk solution for our organization.

Would our needs best be served by performing a monolithic install of all components on a single machine, or would we be better off in a more distributed arrangement?

We had been kicking around the idea of putting the database server on one VM, and all of the app servers on one or more additional VMs.

Hello Bryan,

Thank you for your question.

In my opinion, the best option in here would be "divide to conquer". In case something happens to one of the VMs, you will be able to continue working with the remaining.

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired. As well as that, others will be able to identify your question as answered, speeding our process of answering to unanswered questions. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Hi Rafael,

Thanks for your reply. 

To clarify, are you recommending that we deploy a separate VM for each product?  For example, the JIRA VM would have both the JIRA app and database tiers on the same VM, the Confluence VM would have both the Confluence app and database tiers on that VM, etc?

Can you link me to documentation showing installation on multiple VMs?

I appreciate the guidance.
